Good Evening All.

From one large city to a somewhat smaller one. Plenty of clues in the two postcards.

Well, the North British and Mercantile Insurance was originally in Edinburgh

Not Aitchbee's City, surely?

I'll hazard a guess at Charing Cross or George Cross in Glasgow ... I vaguely remember my little brother going for a job interview at Schweppes, many tonic-waters ago ...

It's Sheffield, but not sure of exact road yet. Fargate maybe.

QuizMan, Woolwell, Well Done, Fitzalan Square and Fargate.

Woolwell, I'm sure QuizMan won't mind you sharing the spotlight ;o}

  QuizMan 22:24 07 Dec 2012

I'm not complaining

QuizMan Guddonyer ;o}

Well Done Quizman. The Sheffield name was synonomous with steel and steelworks, when I looked at my knife or fork at dinner school 50 years ago 'Sheffield Steel' was imprinted upon them ... anyway what does one call someone who comes from Sheffield?
