“For the first time, this book brings under one cover the body of the author’s previous publications, gathering together many curious and interesting facts about Sheffield and its neighborhood.  Much extra material and many new illustrations have been added.
“Old and Historic Buildings” is essentially a reprint of the 1968 edition with valuable supplementary updating notes.  “Ancient Suburbs of Sheffield” is an interesting treatment of the historical facts with stories and anecdotes which both instruct and entertain.
Also included are sections relating to the history of Sheffield’s streets and notable people which were first delivered as talks on B.B.C. Radio Sheffield, and a story of “Judith Lee” which was first published in the “Sheffield Spectator” some years ago and is particularly relevant to eh life and conditions of Sheffield at that time.”
