14/02/2020: BOOK REVIEW: Images of The Past: Sheffield in the 1980s

Images of The Past: Sheffield in The 1980s by Mark Metcalf and Justine Jenkinson. This is a pictorial look into a city that had a very turbulent decade and shows Sheffield's problems. It was a city finding it hard to change from its deep and long connection to coal and the industries dependent on it. The book provides an excellent pictorial insight into the struggles the community had trying to adapt to a new world. It is now a city reborn

It would be nice to see a second book looking at how the city is today. An interesting read and one for the bookshelves of anyone interested in the North of England. Reviewed by Robert Banham on behalf of www.loveofbooks for Pen & Sword History
