Here's a real shopping trip down memory lane - a journey back in time to some much-loved and lost shops of Sheffield in decades gone by.

With the news that renowned Abbeydale Road butcher FJ Kempka & Son - known across the city for its famous pork pies - is to close after sixty years, we've dipped back into our archives to see how Sheffield used to shop in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Famous Sheffield butcher's shop to close after 60 years

Department store likes Atkinsons, Cockaynes, Pauldens and Cole Brothers supplied everything from the finest fashions to household goods of astonishing beauty.

Dozens of music outlets – like Violet Mays and Revolution Records – lined the city streets.

The young and stylish could be seen flocking to buy clobber from Sexy Rexy’s and Chelsea Girl.

And many a Saturday evening tea and Sunday lunch were bought from the butchers and grocers in Castle Market.

And – lest we forget – for the children (and their dads), the dream world that was Redgates toy shop.

How many of these classic Sheffield stores can you recall?
