The old view up to Sheffield Wednesday on Penistone Road

Here's how the view up to the ground used to look on Penistone Road before road widening, houses got knocked down, the trams were ripped out, and it was all replaced by a dual carriageway and a leisure centre

 

lol

We must have lost.

 

There's only one guy waiting for the Green 'Un van, and he's the newsagent.

Most of the right hand side terraces were still there when I started going in 1966.

That building just inside the park gates is marked on the OS map as "urinal", amused me as a lad! it was open when I started going but has been bricked up for donkeys years.

Speaking of views. We used to walked down herries Road under the five arches. Way back we didn't know when we were in TV until we saw the cameras scaffolding erect on to of the kop. 

That was a great sight as we knew that we could watch the lads that night or on a Sunday.
