Opposite The Blake Pub is this corner building ... from the fancy scroll work above the door and windows this too may have been a pub. SK3388 : View down Blake Street, Walkley, Sheffield - February 2009 SK3388 : The Blake, Blake Street, Walkley, Sheffield - February 2009
Update in September 2012
I have finally found an answer to the history of this building ... and seen a coloured photograph of it in the late 1970s ... when it was a Grocery Store and Off-Licence, owned by a family called Whitehouse, and, according to the Sheffield Forum, in the 1980s a family called Baron. In the photo the shop's woodwork is painted Red and White and the walls are not cemented over. There is a sign on the glass over the door which looks like Nut Brown and a large sign on the wall advertising Gunstones. Confusingly, it is unclear but look like the advertising is for Beer and not Bread. These details can be seen in the History section of Friends of Ruskin Park web site ... follow this ...
