Originally called Pinstone Lane, its eastern side contains Sheffield Town Hall and the Peace Gardens. The western side of the street was to be redeveloped as part of the Sevenstone project which was postponed indefinitely as a result of the Late-2000s recession – the street's empty units were then occupied by a number of independent businesses and food outlets.

These pictures have been donated by Picture Sheffield to take you back through the years.
