The £4.3 million redevelopment of Sheffield Cathedral is set to be completed by May. Most of it involves refurbishment of the interior but externally it will include a new entrance way. Victorian pinnacles, which were at the side of the church, have been repositioned on the forecourt already..
They are returning to their rightful place as this picture from 1905 shows.
In those days it was Sheffield Parish Church and notable features are the parked carriages and planted trees in the forecourt.
The postcard image comes from Lost Sheffield in Colour (Amberley, £15.99) by Ian Rotherham, Professor of Environmental Geography at Sheffield Hallam University.
The 130-page book looks at all aspects of Sheffield life through pictures, paintings and postcards.
