Tony Allwright Photo Gallery: Hanover Way (the Ring Road)

Tony Allwright moved to Sheffield in the 1970s. As a keen amateur photographer, he took an interest in documenting the people and buildings of many areas of Sheffield, including Broomhall.

The hundreds of photos of Broomhall that he has kindly shared with OUR Broomhall have been split into different galleries.

This collection shows the construction of the ‘Ring Road’ (Hanover Way) and subway in 1977. It also shows some lovely vintage cars pottering round the roundabout at the junction with Ecclesall Rd, with the ‘Moorfoot Building’  (aka Manpower Services Commission) under construction in the background.

NB: Once you have clicked a photo to view it full size, you can explore the rest of the gallery using the arrow keys on your keyboard and at the bottom of the photos.
