SHEFFIELD and PITSMOOR (where I was born)
Listen to Joe he was born in Sheffield
It all started right here..........
Sheffield, England. Situated on the River Don in S Yorkshire, this city is famous for its steel alloys, cutlery, forging and some really good bands and a famous person or two. The name Sheffield is derived from the River Sheaf which runs through the city, as well as the River Don. Known as the Steel City it developed the steel crucible and stainless steel during the 19th century.This page will GROW as this is the city I was born in.
Showing these old pics is a little unfair as that is what it was like 40 years ago-- Sheffield is a clean and modern city now so I will post more updated pics as we go along.
