Hi SaintsAll,

 

I Presume you are aware of ''Picture Sheffield'' ??

 

Here's a few pics of the area you covered in your photographs.

My dad drove for Gillott's Bread, based on Lyons Street, for a short while in around 1952. I sometimes went on his round with him on Saturdays in his lovely Bedford van. I believe the building on pic s12940 was Gillotts and is also shown on your photo with the ''Alpha'' sign.

 

Not wanting to teach you how to 'suck eggs' :), but after clicking on one of these, then click on 'Zoom image' for a bigger pic.:-
