From the time when it was a major producer of high-quality steel and internationally renowned for its cutlery, through decline and recession in the 20th century to its 21st-century reinvention and revival as a vibrant, developing centre of retail and commerce, Sheffield has a proud and distinctive identity. Sheffield in 50 Buildings explores the extraordinary history of England's fourth largest city through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the 19th-century Gothic Revival Town Hall to the popular Millenium Gallery, 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.
