Tony Allwright Photo Gallery: Hidden Broomhall: Yards and Backs, Garages and Gennels

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 contains photos of the ‘hidden’ Broomhall; the back yards, the sneaky gennels, and the delapidated garages. In the late 1970s and following many years of neglect, some areas of housing in Broomhall had been condemned for demolition by the Council. You can read about the campaign to save these houses elsewhere on this site [LINK], but in fact it was this very threat that spurred Tony Allwright to document the area for posterity.
