Wasn't it next to Van Winkles cafe on Nursery St in the 50s ?/

Van Winkles, now that's a name from the past. I think I'm the upper part of that building was Woodcock freight shippers, which belonged to Woodcock travel.

Can you remember the cobblers shop on the corner of that block. He made great clogs and belts.

I have been going to Scotts since 1969 when they were situated further down the Wicker quite close to the old Brown Cow.

 

My first cut was done by Mr Scott (Micks Dad) the shop was packed and three chairs working continously.

 

Then Mick took over a perfect gent (for a blade)

 

Have carried on going until Bob Retired I know he has been struggling for a few years prices going up and unable to keep staff lower footfall in the area and as he said on my last visit the council will get round to re energising the area eventually but it will be another 10 years at least and thats too long.

 

Another Sheffield Institution gone.

 

Thanks for the chats Bob

No, you've got me there! I believe there was a snooker hall upstairs on the corner? and opposite Scotts a firm that supplied glassware and various gear for the pub trade? Also the Coroners court as I remember and you could just see into their basement through gratings.

The cobbler's shop was the last (or first shop) on that side of Nursery Street, then there was an alleyway that led to the river, the other side of that was the William Deacons bank building on Ladys Bridge that housed the billiard hall.

It was further than the Brown Cow, next to Frederich's pork butcher's who were on the Willey Street corner.

Correct it was next door to Freidrichs (in the same building) but the Brown Cow was further down towards the Wicker arches. Both buildings are still there.
