Sweetie Days

How this picture takes me back. I was born in 1944 in Ashland Road . My brother and I always spent our sweet ration at the corner shop - Frys chocolatce cream and Everton mints were my favourite. And round the corner at Gowers I remember the dark blue paper bags the sugar came in.

About this photo

As Sheffield expanded, a number of turnpike toll bars which had once been in the country were now located within built-up areas. Between 1875 and 1880 the council bought out tolls on the Chesterfield, Langsett and Worksop roads; Hunter's Bar itself was removed on October 1884. The last surviving toll bar in Sheffield was at Meadow Hall - the council paid £1400 for the rights in February 1911.
