The Earl of Arundel and Surrey Hotel Queens Road Sheffield

I came across this old photograph the other day - it was in my late mothers photo album. When she was a child she used to live across the road from the Earl. The house she lived in was demolished in the 1980's to make way for yet another dreary retail park

 
It must have been taken at the turn of the C20th. You can still make out the firm "John Atkinson Milliners 88 - 90 Sheffield Moor " which is still Sheffield's longest serving department store. It opened its doors in 1872
