Days Gone By
Featuring everything from Charters to Churchill to whales, the Sheffield Book of Days is chock full of ‘quirky, notable or eccentric events’ that took place in the streets of Sheffield.
Taking you through the year day by day, The Sheffield Book of Days spans centuries of Sheffield history and gives you the dirty details behind 365 ground-breaking incidents - many of which are previously unpublished and have had a major impact on the religious and political development of the city.
The book has been written by Margaret Drinkall who lives in Rotherham.
She’s a keen local historian and has already published several books such as Rotherham Workhouse, Murder & Crime in Rotherham, Murder and Crime in Sheffield and Sheffield Crimes. Pick up a copy and find out some of the exciting events that created Sheffield as we know it today.
