Does anyone remember the sweet shop in the garden of Ruskin House? This was the Girls’ Training College located near Walkley Cottage, where Rivelin St meets Bole Hill Road. We have heard from a gentleman saying he recalls buying sweets from it when he was a boy but can’t remember anything else.
Do you have any memories of this sweet shop? Can you describe what sort of building it was?
