The grim and bloody events in this book, many of which have not been written about for more than a century, reveal the dark heart of Victorian Yorkshire. These crimes reflect the poverty and squalor in which many of Sheffield's working class lived. Some of these gruesome tales would not look out of place in a work of fiction - a body abandoned in the middle of the street, a man murdered by his wife and her lover and a daring case of highway robbery. Most took place in notorious areas of Sheffield where domestic violence and crime were rife - and some neighbours ignored the shouts and screams of the unfortunate victims because they were so used to hearing them. Richly illustrated with archive and modern photographs, this gruesome collection will fascinate anyone with an interest in Sheffield's dark past.
