Sheffield’s celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of stainless steel stepped up a notch with the launch of the official centenary book.
The glossy hardback book includes hundreds of photos covering a century of stainless evolution as well as eye-catching images of how the material is used in every corner of the world today.
It includes the story of Harry Brearley’s discovery in his own words.
The book was unveiled to the public at Waterstones in the city centre, and compiled by Sheffield Newspapers’ Nancy Fielder who signed copies alongside Master Cutler Neil MacDonald.
Both paid tribute to the city’s proud history of steel making, but also looked to the future of a material which is found in many of the globe’s most iconic buildings. Scores of events are planned through the year as part of the celebrations.
n 100 Years of Stainless Steel: 1913-2013 is available now in The Star shop on York Street priced £20.
