Located in the South Yorkshire region of England, the city of Sheffield was synonymous with the production of cutlery and heavy manufacturing for several hundred years. In recent decades, much of the manufacturing moved elsewhere, and the city has become known as the setting for the popular film The Full Monty, and such music groups as Def Leppard, Pulp, and the singer Joe Cocker. Those persons hoping to get a visual sense of this city's unique past will find this fine photo archive quite exceptional and interesting. Funded from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the collection comes from the Local Studies Library in Sheffield, and currently contains close to 7000 photographs. Here visitors can search by keyword or first letter, and view images of such local landmarks as Cutlers Hall, the University of Sheffield and its campus, and the many cutlery factories which used to dot the city's landscape.
