Through prosperity and depression, war and peace, riots and celebrations, Sheffield's pubs have always been the focal point of communities, providing sanctuary, social interaction, and most importantly, a refreshing pint. Collectively, they offer a unique and fascinating insight into the history and character of the city over the last two centuries. There are hundreds of pubs in Sheffield - their different locations, patrons, buildings, breweries, landlords and landladies make each one individual. Peter Tuffrey has trawled through thousands of editions of the Sheffield Star and Sheffield Telegraph to find snippets that tell us something of the character of each pub, its fortunes and failures. There have been murders, bombings, ghosts and closures, but even through the most troubling times, such as the decline of the steel industry, Sheffield's pubs have always clung on; their importance to local communities is proven time and again in public displays of opposition to any closures that are announced. Pubs are at the very heart of Sheffield and this collection of photographs and stories - sometimes tragic, often humorous - are a fitting tribute to these institutions and the people who run them. So, raise your glasses to Sheffield Pubs, Landlords and Landladies.
