I haven't lived in the area-Carwood- or indeed England since 1986 but I'm curious after looking at Google maps. What happened to the little 'Estate' of houses that used to be on Wensley St? Surely they were only built in the 70's.

Hiya, yes there was a canary island as my grandad used to live there and my great uncle used to talk about it but when I've mentioned it on here before nobody has come back with anything and sadly that generation of my family have died. It would be nice to see some pictures of where my dad's family lived, good luck.

Hi Brian,

 

'fraid I don't recall the names. Having said that, I'm much better with faces :)

I lived the first 14 years of my life on Adsetts Street, leaving for Shiregreen in 1957. Maybe I would have missed them?

Hi Brian,

 

It's the Lyceum Hotel on Pond Hill. Pond Street runs across the pic in front of the light coloured building and Flat Street runs between that building and the dark coloured building behind it, left of pic. The Lyceum Theatre is a few hundred yards further back so presumably there is some connection with the names due to their close proximity.

In 1977 I worked in the Council Housing Dept. buildings which were opposite the pub. Never went in that pub though but occasionaly went in the Surrey on Surrey Street when I moved into the newly opened 'Egg Box' which was the New Town Hall at that time.

Don't think I'll know many Sheffield pubs though as from age 17 most of my time was spent either at work or on my Lambretta with my girlfriend who lived in Bramley, Rotherham. She became my first wife in 1965, the year before the pic, and we set up home in Bramley. Therefore I left Sheffield in 1965, but still worked there on and off. Have also lived in Worksop and have lived on the edge of a small village in North Yorkshire about half a mile from the County Durham border for the last 4 years. I regularly visit family and friends in Sheffield and look around Grimesthorpe and the old places.

 

Peter.

That was intresting reading Peter, the Lyceum Hotel as you said could

have had some connection and them shinny tiles on the outside walls

bet yer could comb yer hair through them.

Youv'e certainly move about and its like the countryside, and the

Lambretta's i remember them in the 60s although i never could aford

one i spent most of my little money in the pubs.

In 1970, i was working 12hrs shifts days/nights at Firth Browns, after

my Deductions i was taking about £19 for day shift and £22 for nights.

Those were the days. PM, Thanks for your PM. Brian. :hihi::hihi:
