Sadly it started to rain.............. This is Paradise Square, where all the rich folks work in the centre of Sheffield. These Georgian Houses are now all Law Firms.

Some of the properties still have iron railings, this use to be common until WWII when the majority of them were requisitioned by the government and melted down for the war effort.

The few that remain are indicative of the then owners of the properties having more influence than those who surrendered their iron railings.

When I first moved to Sheffield the majority of the roads were still cobbled; sadly, they are few and far between now.

These buildings, as would be the case for the majority of Sheffield, would have been almost black from the smog and pollution of the Steel works, more famously known for producing cutlery, but during WWII produced products for the war effort.

Sheffield had a reputation for smog, My Grandmother would often tell me how dirty Sheffield is; however, from the 1960's onwards, Sheffield was cleaned up and is now still one of the cleanest cities in the UK having more green areas, trees and parks than most other cities. I have always known it as a clean city, by the time I arrived here, Sheffield had been cleaned up; the majority of the slums had been demolished and re-built.

I have included variations of this image............... Please enjoy!

Colleen, Sheffield is made up of....... and I can never remember which round this is, either 5 hills and 7 tributaries or 7 hills and 5 tributaries, I think it is the latter because I can only every remember the names of 5 rivers. When you leave Sheffield you do so on the incline and while you are away they tilt it so that when you return you do so on the incline.

It is said that Sheffield women have hips like battle ships because of all the hills............. fortunately the car has been invented to help us up these hills

V6 is my favourite, I like the way you have composed this, accentuating the steepness and the cobbles, and placing the drain cover in the foreground.
