Sheffield in 50 Buildings
From a time when it was a producer of high-quality steel and internationally renowned for its cutlery, through decline and recession in the twentieth century, to its twenty-first-century reinvention and revival as a vibrant, developing centre of retail and commerce, Sheffield has a proud and distinctive history.
Sheffield in 50 Buildings explores the extraordinary history of England’s fourth largest city through a selection of its architectural treasures. From the nineteenth-century Gothic Revival Town Hall to the popular Millennium Gallery, which opened in 2001 as part of the successful Heart of the City project, this unique study celebrates the city’s architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local author and Historian Ian Rotherham guides the reader on a tour of the city’s historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
