Sheffield Replanned

A friend gave me a book called "Sheffield Replanned", which was published in 1945.

 

It sets out the Town Planning Committee's vision for rebuilding the city after the ravages of World War II: "the creation of a noble City worthy of the Citizens who will be privileged to reside therein".

 

This illustration shows an artist's impression of the view that would greet visitors arriving at the railway station.
