My grand mother and grandfather lived on Cyclops Street at #40 in 1915. Names were Jesse Frederick and Esther Russell. Most of the neighbors are deceased but is it possible someone who was a child at that time remembers them?  Also trying to find a picture of cyclops street about that time.  Thanks.

Can't help with a photograph of Cyclops Street from 1915!   Here's one taken in 1975 from the  Picture Sheffield collection!

You'll be struggling for anyone living to be honest, but sometimes it's possible to find descendants of siblings or wider family, and you never know what they might know.

   I've had a quick look but can't find a Jesse Frederick in Sheffield at any time, there are a few Esther Russell's though. If you can give any more clues, ie birth death or marriage info I'll have another look......Ignore the last bit...I've just found them on the '39 Register living at 55 Southey Place...I'll dig a little more asap.

   Having dug a little more Jesse married Esther Howe in 1911...his address was given as 32 Cyclops St.

 

   As for pics...search this forum and there are a couple of old threads linking to Picture Sheffield...I can't help on identifying them as I'm not from round there...but I'm sure some on here can help.
