   If you search for 'Midland Station Hotel' on PictureSheffield.com there is a long distance shot down Howard Street which shows a 4-story building. This would put it very near to the station itself, so the Midland Hotel shown on Paul Es 1895 map is probably it. However, the 1905 Godfrey map does not show it, and the area where it was (and Station Road) has become a goods yard.

Hi Broakham

Yes, I just found that photo now

It looks a bit big to be 'our' hotel, doesn't it?

Does this mean we're back to the bleedin' drawing board?  ??? ::)

On the left of the square at the back is the post office.

Sorry!  That wasn't to let!

Annie Sorry not the one, quite a inferior building and still there.  I dont think this building is there any more.

Like the idea of the Midland hotel on the map but the one in the photo has too many floors

Here you are in probably the 1930s http://www.rootschat.com/links/01au/

I think it was a theatre - light coloured building to  the right after the gap past the Kings Head.
