Boys Working Home at 82 Broomspring Lane: 1901 census
On the 1901 census we discovered that there was a boys working home at 82 Broomspring Lane, run by Alfred Stubbing and his wife Sarah. It is interesting that all the boys age 12-15 are listed as firewood workers. This building has disappeared now and was near the current ring road. There is this picture of no 82-88 Broomspring Lane in the Picture Sheffield collection from Sheffield Archives & Local Studies. No 82 is the larger building at the bottom.
Many of these boys would probably go on to serve in World War I.
