There used to be a bake shop on Parkside Rd.When I was going to Hillsborough infants school, must have been  around  1945 I was given milk money,I think it was a penny.

I used to walk up Parkside Rd to school.We would sometimes buy  a tea cake with the milk money At the bake shop
By the way there was a photo on the BBC Sheffield website showing 75 anniversary by some residents of Parkside Rd

I remember this shop, Only remember the daughters who seemed middle aged when I was a child. Old Tup if you remember the entrance to Swann Morton’s opposite the old church on Borough road, Park View road is opposite. Warringtons transport had a yard opposite the  shop at the time. Think it was demolished in the early 60s.

It didn’t look like a bakery at all. It was a terraced  house, it had a loud bell under a rubber mat just inside the door, all the kids going past would jump on the mat and then leg it.I think the bakery was at the back of the house. You are right Express Dairies and then Warringtons had the yard.

The stone detached house in Warringtons yard and Nicholsons shop opposite were knocked down at the same time. Maisonettes were built on the land both sides of the road in the early 60s. It didn’t look like a bakery at all, it was just a terraced house and in the window was advertisements.  Quite dark inside too.

I can just give a little information as to how long the shop was there. As retep indicated, in the 1925 directory the occupant of 12-14 Park View Road is shown as "Joseph Nicholson, grocer" (also in the 1922 directory).  The 1931 directory has "Misses Mary Elizabeth and Jane Nicholson, grocers" at that address. This listing is essentially unchanged in later directories up to 1957.  The next one I have is for 1963, in which 12-14 Park View Road is no longer listed and so had evidently been demolished.  Here is a link to the relevant data in the 1939 Register: https://i.postimg.cc/2SFPt6hW/Park-View-Road.jpg   By this time Mary and Jane's parents had retired and moved to Wood Lane.

Hi hillgirl.  I lived with my parents until 1969  in one of those maisonettes which looked onto the running track in hillsborough park.  There was a shop on the corner opposite our houses.  Further along the road there was a back entrance to the park.  I don't  remember any more shops on that road but there was a dilapidated house which was under probate i believe in the late 60s/early 70s located close to the shop.  Hope that's  helpful.
