In their day, they were among the best known landmarks known to Sheffield residents and visitors alike.
In the week that it is has emerged that Sheffield’s oldest man misses most the old Hole in the Road, and the Castle Market, we have taken a look through our archives to find them and other much missed landmarks.
Some of them were famous meeting places, or just great places to go for entertainment.
Our picture gallery shows 16 sights many readers will fondly remember, which have been lost in recent decades.
How many of them do you remember?

4. Crimean war memorial, Botanical Gardens
After being removed from the top of The Moor to the Botanical Gardens (without its previous column), the landmark was 'lost' again in 2004 when it was removed from the garden by Sheffield Council, and put into storage by the authority. It has never been put back on display. Photo: Dean Atkins
