Thanks for lighting up the map, it shows what might have been.  Did you see what I think are the prices of the proposed 

houses in 1866 and who had bought some of the lots (John Brown). The pink piece below Petre St became a quarry.

Cockshutt Lane now Grimesthorpe Rd, Cyclops St to originally be named Clifton Rd.

 

Ps, how did you convert to http://??

Hello beezerboy,


I took the prices as being for the plots of land rather than the houses.


I opened the page on Picture Sheffield and copied and pasted.

You could be right, if we knew how much a pint of beer cost in 1866 we might have a better idea.

Have you noticed how many times the name 'Hodson' appears on the map.  I wonder if the pub was named after him?
