Crookes Junction - Then and Now

 Another postcard that is simply entitled "Broomhill, Sheffield"


But to be more specific it shows the junction of Crookes with Glossop Road at Broomhill probably circa 1910.

I took a similar photograph in November 2006 although unlike the photographer in the above photo I stood on the pavement!


But the whole scene is better expressed in the George Cunningham painting "Crookes Junction"
