Anyone remember it with the newsagent next door?

 

Yes believe it or not there was a rolling mill just around the corner on Capel Street 'Carlisles' I think. At the bottom of Burton Street on the corner was Parkins shop and beyond a Chippy on the next block.Going the other way beyond Capel Street was the Rose House one of the first to have a beer Garden with kids play area. Also remember Jewel razors over Penistone Road, Newly built, it didn't take long before there was a strike over there; Prior to it's building was a Pub whos name I forget, I only ever went in the once.

What was the old one like?

It’s not the pub that’s new, it’s the Barracks that were new ie it’s the New Barrack, Tavern

It was a very busy, thriving area when I started work at Daniel Doncaster in 1964. There were several large employers on Penistone Road plus all the peripherals that went with them. Also there still a lot of houses on the roads leading off Penistone Road.

It was one of the Cavalry captains from the Barracks who assisted and compiled 'Sheffield Rules' which were adopted by the F.A.. 

 

Not too far away was the Queens Ground (Pub of same name) but somehow or other there stood a Cricket Ground there.

In the early eighties that was a takeaway sandwich shop. We used to go and get our morning sausage, bacon and tomato sarnies mid morning when we worked at Donasters!

Sarnie shop at one point was run by Les (RIP) a big owls fan 

Used to bring sarnies on bus to away games from Norfolk Arms and Acorn at Chapeltown 

Liked a drink did Les and always knew a pub to go to wherever you went

Great memories
