Sheffield's Victorian History

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm doing my dissertation on housing available for the working class, middle class and upper class in Victorian (1800 - 1900) England. Its location, style, build and quality! 

If anyone has any pointers into this in Sheffield's history I'd be really interested to research them. Whether that is older buildings around Sheffield, old stories or books. 

Thanks :D

Have a look on the "picture Sheffield" web site. There are lots of pictures of old housing there.

Here are a couple of Free e-books that may give you a good start

(Vital Statistics of Sheffield 1843 and the Sanatory (sic) Condition of Sheffield 1848)

David Hey's "A History of Sheffield" 1998 may also be helpful.

Chris Hobbs has an extract from "A History of Labour in Sheffield 1850-1939". by Professor S Pollard (formerly of  Sheffield University) which is available an e-book and presumably in the university library ---------     https://www.chrishobbs.com/sheffvicthouse.htm
