WAVES of nostalgia swept Sheffield yesterday at the launch of The Star’s new book Retro Rewound.

Scores of Retro readers turned out for the event at the Town Hall to share their photos and memories and to take a sneak peak inside the book.

The Star will be printing the pictures in forthcoming Retros – starting tomorrow with the first from the occasion.

Local historian and Lord Mayor Coun Sylvia Dunkley was there alongside many of Retro’s regular contributors.

While some readers were armed with their own photos others were searching for answers to questions about the Steel City.

There were queries about everything from tailors to tunnels dating back many decades as well as old photos of Sheffield Wednesday and United.

Many brought treasured pictures from their family albums while others had captured images of Sheffield landmarks that we all recognised.

Retro always welcomes reader photos, memories, questions and ideas – so keep sending them in to Retro, The Star, York Street, Sheffield, S1 1PU.

n Retro Rewound, a nostalgic celebration of Sheffield, is available now priced £9.99 from The Star shop on York Street or by calling 0114 2767676 x 3130.
