Product description

The Sheffield Cutlery industry has been a big part of Sheffield's identity, as has industry as a whole. This book is an examination of the workers behind Sheffield's cutlery industry - those men and women who worked for a pittance in hardship so that others may dine with luxury silverware. With some great images of bygone times, the author and photographer take pains to bring the past the life as best anyone could, with first-person interviews with many former craftsmen and women and accounts of the norms of their lives. People with an interest in local history and history students more widely will find a lot to appreciate in this splendid book.

Book is in good condition (please see attached photographs). Purchase it soon to avoid missing this opportunity!
