The map at the bottom of Shambles Street on which you could press a button and a light would come on telling you where that thing was (like the post office or whatever). Or, in its later days, didn't come on. The old stable nativity scene they had in front of the town hall at Christmas. The roundabout in the market. Ray Allan's eternal closing down sale. I suppose they were right eventually. The sweet shop at the top of regent street that sold all those different sweets in jars. The bakery at the bottom of the arcade with the gingerbread men in the window. The cafe on Eldon Street with the fake leather orange seats, and the one at the bottom of back Regent Street that did meals for kids called stuff like 'Cowboys Nosh-up' and the cafe in BHS. The pie and peas place in the market. The market being good and being able to buy absolutely owt. Casa Disco and EGS. The Civic being a proper massive theatre. The Who played there and The Kinks. Globe Theatre. Town end before the roundabout and it was just mental. Japanese Whispers. Barnsley baths. The Alabama Alligator, Old Pavillion, Wheatsheaf, Gardeners and Vine. Having a department store (old Co-op) or two if you count BHS. Shops being shops. Not card shops or pound shops or charity shops but proper shops that specialised in stuff you wanted to buy. John Brittons The Odeon cinema when it was massive, before they split it in to two screens and you could watch the film from upstairs. All buses being red, all fairs being 2p anywhere in South Yorkshire and bus conductors that came round with the machine. Not ticket inspectors though, the b'stards.
