It occurred to me that visitors from other lands might like to get a sense of where I am writing from.
We live at the top of a long road - the house numbers go from 1 to 204. Our road runs parallel to Ecclesall Road which is the main artery leading out of the city of Sheffield to the south west.
In less than five minutes I can walk out to that main road where I can catch buses or visit the post office, local shops, a pharmacy, a Chinese takeaway, a fish and chip shop, "The Banner Cross" pub, two smaller micro-pubs, various hairdressers, a cobbler's shop, various estate agents, a newsagent's shop and a Persian bakery etc.. This afternoon I needed to renew my "Lotto" ticket at the Sainsbury's local supermarket so I took my camera along.
It was a mild but grey November afternoon with no sign of rain. For a change, I decided to present these photos in black and white apart from the picture at the top which I took when looking in the window of Blundells estate agency.
