Oyl Int Ruwad: Part One
Everyone I know who was brought up in Sheffield can remember the ‘ole in’t road’.
It’s ingrained onto the collective memories of anyone who was in the city between 1967 and 1994. A sort of roundabout with escalators leading underground, part subway, part subterranean shopping centre, it housed entrances to department stores, benches for weary shoppers and tramps, and a giant fish tank full of murky water and miserable fish. It is infamous.
But my favourite thing has to be this brilliant animated Lego video made by Jason Effex for a song by Sheffield’s finest ukulele wielding Everly Pregnant Brothers.
This is the first of three posts in honour of three slides. Tactile pieces of Sheffield’s history living in Manchester.
