Sheffield retro: 22 nostalgic photos of city's most exclusive neighbourhood, Dore and Totley

These pictures take you from 1907 through to the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s

It’s one of the most expensive places to live in Sheffield, and also one of the happiest.

Dore and Totley boasts a thriving community, and the area’s location on the edge of the countryside but with easy access to Sheffield city centre and by train to Manchester make it hugely desirable.

On Dore Road, houses sell for an average of more than £1.9 million, making it the second most expensive street in Sheffield.

The southwest suburb of Sheffield is also one of the UK’s happiest, according to data from the Office for National Statistics.

These nostalgic pictures capture Dore and Totley through the years, from 1907, when it was the scene of a terrible railway crash, through to the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

Popular pubs and old shops feature among the images in this retro photo gallery, along with pictures of pupils at the area’s highly-regarded schools.
