This volume traces the history of Sheffield from a Medieval town that Chaucer knew through the great Victorian age of industry to the late twentieth-century and a new era of post-industrial revolution. This account of Sheffield's past considers the impact of the vast steel-rolling mills, compares the lives of mill owner and mill worker and looks at life in the countless back-to-backs once strewn across this richly varied city. Using a wealth of photographs, maps and prints the author brings the story up to date and considers what the future may hold for this great city. An important feature of this book is a guided walking tour of the city centre that takes the reader through the modern city and points out features of the past that are still there to see.
