Tony Allwright Photo Gallery: Broomhall Children, 1978

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 gallery contains photos taken in 1978. Tony had a real knack for making portraits of the many young people who spent so much of their time out and about, playing on the streets of Broomhall – especially around the flats. Things were different then – no internet, computer games or mobile phones!
