Brook Cottages Atterclife Sheffield


I came across this photograph of Brook Cottages Atterclife Sheffield. There is no information on the reverse  of the postcard as to date etc.

I did a little checking and found he following information in White's Directory of Sheffield which was published in 1852.

"The poor have several small benefactions; ...The four old almshouses in Attercliffe, anciently the town school, were rebuilt by the overseers, in 1836, at the cost of about £170."

I should imagine that the cottages were demolished many years ago but I would like to find out the date.
