This volume collects together the most shocking criminal cases from Sheffield's Victorian newspapers. These grisly cases will transport the horrified reader back to a time where horse-drawn carriages clattered through the streets of the city, and the town's gin palaces and music halls teemed with thieves, drunkards and fallen women. In an age where the gap between rich and poor was enormous, crime was understandably rife - and the penalties for it dreadful. Filled with infamous historical cases - including grave robbing, murder, poisoning, bigamy, and daring jewel and garrotte robberies - and richly illustrated with photographs from private collections and from the local archives, Sheffield Crimes will fascinate residents, visitors and historians alike.
