I know that most of us that post here are shall we say in our prime and that "in our day" it seemed ok to use terms such as "nig nog" but I really do think that we now understand that that sort of name calling is unnecessary and very offensive.

I was born and brought up in Attercliffe and my Mom often used to take me to the Globe and Pavillion. I remember the times we went to see the hollywood musicals and how much my Mom loved them .Both of these cinemas were taken over and used only for Indian films but if this had not happened they would have had to close down because they were not getting the bums on seats for the mainstream films. Nothing stays the same for very ever, only our memories and even they fade.

Here's how much I'm in my prime. I was 9 years old when we went to see Broadway Melodies of 1939 at the Pavilion on the night of December 12th 1940. The air raid siren went and like normal we all ignored it cos we'd had lots of false alarms.All of a sudden the guns opened up and bombs began falling on the city. We were directed to an underground shelter and stayed there all night while an Irish cop gave us a running commentary from the surface. Attercliffe was fairly lucky that night though some people were kiled in Brightside.

Hi Kiwi, Nice to meet another emigrant like myself. I departed UK shores in 1968 to Montreal in 1968, then later moved to the US, where I have been a citizen since 1987. Have you ever returned for a visit? I took my son to see the house I was born in at Stamford Street, Brightside only to find it was now a giant parking lot. Later, in 1989 my cousin Ernie drove me along Attercliffe road and Common as they were turning it into a dual carriageway and knocking down many of the old buildings. Do I ever regret leaving? In some ways yes, but the country seems very crowded to someone with lots of space to enjoy. I have met many kiwis in my time and found them very easy to get along with, which is not always the case with your bigger neighbor.

hi Buck know what you mean by space to enjoy. l was back in Sheffield a couple of years ago and was amazed at all the changes but it was great to hear that Sheffield accent again.

Your message about the air raids in Attercliffe brought back a few memories too.Kiwi

HI ROSIEBEAR a Mr Leary does ring a bell though after 50 years the memory for names gets a little hazy. l do remember a couple of names at your end of the street there was the Marriot's, Richardson's Pickles and of course l remember Browns shop in the middle of the street at yor end there was another shop l believe was Batties(the grouch)further along was the Petties,race BEARDSHAW'S (TIS I AT 29)The Waller's and Redford's. Theres more people l remember but due to a touch of senility l carn't put names to them.Have to ask my sisters they are still in Sheffield
