Identified by Chris - Looking along Effingham Street but we can't decide whether the junction on the left is Kenneth Street or Norfolk Street (which used to join up to Effingham Street). If you know please email us or tweet @OldRotherham . Ken Thackery on Facebook states that it must be Kenneth Street as you can see the building that is now Effingham DIY. L.a. Johnson again on Facebook disagrees stating "The street imediately on the left was Norfolk Street.the trolley bus wires for the Slverwood route can just be seen turning out of that street, I used to drive those buses so I know it was Norfolk St.

Notes
A private Act of Parliament passed in 1851 enabled the landowner, the Earl of Effingham to re-develop the town centre so it was out with the old and in with the new. Effingham Street, Howard Street & Frederick Street, new streets named after his family, came into being and considering how much Rotherham has changed, are still around. The area between these three streets forms roughly a triangle on which a complex of Victorian buildings was erected in the late 19th Century. All of these still exist but most are now used for different purposes.
