Photograph taken 25 March 2012.
I recently came across this image in my archives. I always thought it was an interesting image and not sure why it wasn’t published back when it photographed. The irregular light pattern was created by reflected sunlight from windows opposite the artwork. Created by Kid Acne in 2012 the building on which this was painted has long since been demolished.
The Grey Squirrel is not a native species to the UK. After it was introduced in the 19th Century it gradually displaced and grew to out-number native Red Squirrels. On Little Bits of Sheffield it has for one day displaced the usual less animated content and is dedicated to Victoria over on Neo Watercolour.
The photograph was taken at the Botanical Gardens on 30 March 2017.
As it winds through Sheffield the River Don features a series of weirs. These are a legacy of it’s industrial past. They were used to impound water which was used to power mills, hammers and grinding wheels. Walk Mill weir supplied the Upper and Nether Walk mills and wheels.

This may well be the last ‘Geo’ photograph in the series. However, never say never…
