EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the year 1853, offering a glimpse into the proposed mode of laying out for building purposes in the Sharrow and Kenwood Park Estates near Sheffield. The visionary behind this grand plan was none other than George Wostenholm, who sought to transform these lands into thriving residential areas. The intricate details captured by photographers Parkin and Bacon reveal not only the proposed roads but also significant landmarks of that time. One can spot the toll bar on the road from Bakewell (Ecclesall Road), serving as a reminder of an era when travel required payment at certain points. The scale provided allows us to appreciate how meticulously every inch was measured, with 4 chains equating to just one inch on this map. As we explore further, our eyes are drawn towards notable features such as Kenwood Hall, Cherry Tree Hill, Montgomery Road, and even a cemetery nearby. These elements paint a vivid picture of what life would have been like in this evolving landscape during the mid-19th century. Preserved at Sheffield Local Studies Library today, this historical artifact provides valuable insights into urban planning and development strategies employed by forward-thinking individuals like George Wostenholm. It serves as a testament to their vision for creating vibrant communities that continue to thrive till this day.
