Grandad, me, in our backyard, behind a row of genuine 2-up 2-down houses on Grammar Street Sheffield. Late 1960s, prior to demolition of the entire area and rehousing on Kelvin Flats. See, I've always had a high hairline, receding, no? Tut.

Contact sheet. Ilford HP5. From around 1988, the Zastava Yugo was first registered on 4 November 1988 and I remember he had just bought it new so some images from shortly after that date. Various images from wandering around the city, and of Hyde Park flats shortly before demolition. Incidentally the DVLA say the date of liability for the car was 1 May 1996, so it wasn't around very long. Image 1 was taken on Ecclesall Road somewhere near Hickmott Road, the machine may still be there. Images 3A and 4A were taken on the land where Heeley Retail park is now - maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&ll=53.354394,-1.480654&a... Images 8A, 9A, 10A and 11A were taken on Hyde Park Flats.. Images 12A and 13A are of Ponds Forge swimming pool being built and were taken from the top deck of a bus to Stocksbridge when on my way to work. Images 15A, 16A and 18A are of a Kawasaki Z400, while 19A and 20A show the sidecar that was attached to the motorbike.
