Welcome to Ourselves Our Place

On this site you'll find stories and images collected from people living in north Sheffield. They paint a picture of an area, but more importantly, they will give you a privileged insight into the personal recollections and private passions that shape us - from making a living to falling in love, from bringing up a family to nights out on the town.

The stories range from the 1920s to the present day. Parson Cross, Southey, Shirecliffe and Foxhill are the main areas represented.

Click on the images to read and listen to people's memories and opinions about life today.
