I came across this postcard of Tapton Cliffe Residential Hotel which was situated at 276 Fulwood Road Sheffield
When I checked I found that the residence is now up for sale at a mere £1.75 million. This agents who are dealing with the sale gave a brief history of the property
Tapton Cliffe was constructed around 1864 by JohnYeomans Cowlishaw, a well-known Sheffield Cutler.
The house was occupied as a private residence until
1920 when The University of Sheffield purchased
the building as a hall for female students and this
use continued until 1934 when Tapton Cliffe was
converted to a residential hotel.
In 1948 the property
was sold to the Secretary of State for Social Services
and became the Royal Infirmary Sisters’ Home until
1963. The property remained in the ownership of
United Sheffield Hospitals and NHS until 1985
when Tapton Cliffe became a private nursing home
turning to Tapton Cliffe Clinic in 1990. Since 1995
the building has been occupied by Guide Dogs for
the Blind Association and Blind Veterans UK."
There is a summary of the Cowlishaw Family History on the above link but it appears that John Yeomans Cowlishaw had a tragic end
