Sheffield Pubs Book Review:

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.

Tracing Your Female Ancestors Book Review:

Everyone has a mother and a line of female ancestors and often their paths through life are hard to trace. That is why this detailed, accessible handbook is of such value, for it explores the lives of female ancestors from the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 to the beginning of the First World War. In 1815 a woman was the chattel of her husband; by 1914, when the menfolk were embarking on one of the most disastrous wars ever known, the women at home were taking on jobs and responsibilities never before imagined. Adèle Emm’s work is the ideal introduction to the role of women during this period of dramatic social change. Chapters cover the quintessential experiences of birth, marriage and death, a woman’s working and daily life both middle and working class, through to crime and punishment, the acquisition of an education and the fight for equality. Each chapter gives advice on where further resources, archives, wills, newspapers and websites can be found, with plentiful common sense advice on how to use them.

Behind Bars Book Review:

As a landlady, Joan Lee was a marvel. Imagine Bet Lynch's bustier, wiser sister, always at the heart of the party; a woman who did things her own way. Joan was born into a teetotal, chapel-going family in 1923 in Handsworth, Sheffield. As a teenager in the Blitz, she found herself perilously close to the bombs and destruction, but she also found the love of her life, Fred Lee. She incurred the wrath of her parents, as her boyfriend's parents were in the pub trade, but she went on to become one of Sheffield's longest serving landladies, with over fifty years spent "behind bars" in pubs from the East End of Sheffield to leafy Dronfield. Pubs have changed beyond recognition in Joan's lifetime. In the 50s and 60s, the coal and steel industries dominated Sheffield, and landlords ruled their pubs, keeping order with an iron fist. This book is a window into that lost world.

Lodgers, Landlords, and Landladies in Georgian London Book Review:

A large proportion of London's population lived in lodgings during the long 18th century, many of whom recorded their experiences. In this fascinating study, Gillian Williamson examines these experiences, recorded in correspondences and autobiographies, to offer unseen insights into the social lives of Londoners in this period, and the practice of lodging in Georgian London. Williamson draws from an impressive array of sources, archives, newspapers, OBSP trials and literary representations to offer a thorough examination of lodging in London, to show how lodging and lodging houses sustained the economy of London during this time. Williamson offers a fascinating insight into the role lodging houses played as the facilitators of encounters and interactions, which offers an illuminating depiction of social relations beyond the family. The result is an important contribution to current historiography, of interest to historians of Britain in the long 18th century.

Rural Rides Book Review:

I found the working people of Frome very intelligent; very well informed as to the cause of their misery; not at all humbuggered by the canters, whether about religion or loyalty. -from "Salisbury to Highworth, Saturday, 2 September" Son of an innkeeper, former soldier, champion of the working class, early anticorporate activist, and future Member of Parliament-Will Cobbett's unique eye offers us a perspective on 19th-century England we won't find anywhere else. Cobbett roamed Southern England on horseback in the years between 1821 and 1832, gathering his "economical and political observations relative to matters applicable to, and illustrated by, the state of" that charming part of the world, one in the throes of massive change in the wake of the Industrial Revolution. This is an extraordinary record of a world long gone, one very little documented when it existed, by a voice who was far ahead of his time. British journalist and radical WILLIAM COBBETT (1762-1835) is also the author of The Progress of a Ploughboy to a Seat in Parliament (1830).
