Sheffield retro: Gallery shows well-loved city centre shops of the 80s, in an era before Meadowhall

It was the days before Meadowhall or the internet.

And that meant if you wanted to go shopping, the place to go was Sheffield city centre.

That was the 1980s in Sheffield. In those days, Fargate was packed with shoppers, and The Moor was similarly busy, while the route between the two, along Pinstone Street, also remained bustling. Similarly places like West Street were thriving.

We have put together a picture gallery which shows some of the best loved places to shop back in the 1980s. Some were huge, while others were pretty tiny, but nevertheess massively popular. Which was your favourite?
