    Sad to see Sheffield becoming an industrial wasteland, Meadowhall may be a nice enough shopping mall, but it won't leave any sort of history of human endeavour behind when its demolished.
    I'm still not over the demolition of the Tinsley cooling towers.
    That really nails it down to the 80s doesn't it? Funnily enough like both those bands. I remember Meadowhall rising Pheonix-like out of the desolation. If you go down Attercliffe now there's still a bit of a melancholic feel to the place. Some of the shops and pubs that survived the decline of the steel industry meltdown have now fell victim to the recent recession which is rather sad.

    Nice one mr_bones

    :notworthy: Hughie, truly great to see photos from so long ago! (While I was still a glint in my father's eye actually)
    It's exactly how I imagined Sheffield to have been during that era.

    Just had to search They Might Be Giants, as I'd not heard of them, I have to say I'm quite keen!

    Lovely rich images in every sense of the word, many thanks for posting these.
    He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand; And I said, "Listen! I've traveled every road in this here land!"

    Very cool pics, more like Threads than Apocalypse Now though :p

    Talking of which those derelict houses in the first post look very familiar, anyone know if they were used in the filming of Threads?
