The answer is that Sheffield used to have both these buildings but that these landmarks were both demolished, along with many more, such as two big cinema buildings that once dominated the area around the City Hall. Take a look and see if you remember Victoria Station, Norfolk Market Hall, the Albert Hall, the Grand Hotel or the Gaumont.
