These photos of Attercliffe were taken by Ordnance Survey surveyors whilst mapping Sheffield in 1948 and are available here for the first time. Only these 114 photos of 1 km square of Sheffield have been found so far. They are not great quality (but any photo is more precious than no photo) so we are making these free to download.
We have over 35,000 similar photos of Greater Manchester available HERE that are scanned from negatives and are much higher quality.
Photos are located on a map so, you can see where they were taken. click the button at top right of the map to see a satellite image instead of a street map.
