Sheffield Pubs, Landlord's and Landladies Summary

Sheffield Pubs, Landlord's and Landladies by Peter Tuffrey

As can be imagined there are countless Sheffield pubs - past and present. Therefore, finding a unique, manageable angle on the subject to produce a book is difficult. Yet Peter Tuffrey has done just that featuring endless unique tales about the pubs themselves and the landlords and landladies running them. Trawling through literally thousands of newspapers cuttings from the Sheffield Star and Sheffield Telegraph pub files he has noted subjects and incidents ranging from pub closures to murders, from retirements to renovations and from pub bombings to pub ghosts. Many of Sheffield's pubs were built to coincide with the growth of the city's steel industry and to slake the thirsts of its workers. These pubs are pictured and documented in decline or just before demolition and it is a pity more were not saved to illustrate the city's rich industrial heritage. We see landlords, landladies and regulars posing outside and it just goes to show how important pubs were in terraced communities. Several pages are also given to the breweries once belching beer fumes across the city air and a number of the processes are depicted in photographs with pin sharp clarity. So, raise your glasses to this book - Sheffield Pubs, Landlords and Landladies.
