Sheffield retro: 18 photos remembering forgotten shops on The Moor, including BHS, Debenhams and Woolworths

Sheffield city centre’s busiest shopping street has witnessed huge changes over the years.

Many stores have come and gone on The Moor as shopping habits have changed, as these nostalgic photos from decades gone by show. There are few constants other than Sheffield’s famous Atkinsons department store at the foot of The Moor, which last year turned 150.

These photos, from the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s, show lost shops ranging from those which have disappeared more recently, like Debenhams, BHS and Woolworths, to those which vanished long ago including the old Pauldens and Roberts Brothers department stores.
