Andrew said: “I’m a photographer from Canada and happened to be in Sheffield a few months ago. I put together a series of interactive Then and Now photos of the city.

“I think they’re a cool way to step back in time and serve to illustrate the dramatic changes Sheffield has experienced over the last century and more.”
