This is a series of films made by Chapeltown dentist Willie Thorne that have been put together. They show the visit by the King and Queen to Sheffield in 1941, and, in Chapeltown near Sheffield, War Weapon's Week, a Home Guard exercise, a Thanksgiving Parade, a football match and children sledging in Chapeltown Park. It also shows Ladybower Reservoir shortly after opening in 1945.
Made by local historian Ronald Fairfax, this film provides a history of Sheffield specifically with an emphasis on the steel industry. The film utilizes archive film to illustrate the commentary and includes extensive footage from Frank Mottershaw's 'The Life and Times of Charles Peace', and exceptional film of when there was a bus driver's strike in Sheffield in 1959.
