I saw and old photo of a Sheffield street and I was (rightly or wrongly) told it was Cuthbert street. Am I mistaken? Could it be Cuthbert road?

Haven't come across Cuthbert Steet,  Cuthbert Road was  a short road, Langsett Road to Cuthbert bank

Hi lakerman,

As retep wrote, Cuthbert Road was between Langsett Road and Cuthbert Bank Road, but the directories I have back to the 19th century make no mention of a Cuthbert Street. If the photo shows terraced houses it is most likely Cuthbert Road. Here is a link to a photo of Cuthbert Road on the "picturesheffield" site.

Cuthbert Street can be found on maps from the early 1890s, exactly where Cuthbert Road is on later maps.   So either those maps made a mistake, or the name changed.

 

See for example:

 

OS Town Plan, 1890 1:500:

Still there in 1894 on this map:

But Cuthbert Road on this 1905 map:

 

https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/435500/387500/12/100571

 

(not sure those links work as intended, but easy enough to find anyway)

So a rush of blood to Ordnance Survey's head, then, unless the Council changed the name and then changed it back!

That's how it seems! The 1881 and 1901 directories also show it as Cuthbert Road. Cuthbert-Road.jpg

Well, thanks to everyone for trying to solve my question. Unfortunately I deleted the photo in error but I know that it was definitely not Cuthbert Road having seen a photo of that road on Picture Sheffield. I have searched for ages on Picture Sheffield to find it but to no avail. Thanks again everyone.

On the corner of Cuthbert Road/Street (296) was a public house, I might be wrong but it was said to be the smallest pub in Sheffield; I recall that it was more like a beer-off with a table inside.
