Sheffield retro: 19 photos to transport you back to 1973, including old Sheaf Market and Napoleons Casino

It’s hard to believe 1973 was half a century ago but these photos show just how much Sheffield has changed over the past 50 years.

Popular businesses and landmarks we have lost, traditions which have died out and pastimes from a bygone era are captured in these black and white photos of Sheffield five decades ago.

Traders at the old Sheaf Market, Napoleons Casino on Ecclesall Road, the devastation caused by an explosion at a gas works, and the final cricket match at Bramall Lane are among the scenes depicted in this retro photo gallery.
