Bank Edward King Netherthorpe Queen Royal Sheffield Visits Alexandra Ceremonies Opening Universities


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the historic cover of a programme from a momentous event in Sheffield's history. The year was 1905, and it marked the highly anticipated visit of HM King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra to this vibrant city. Their purpose? To inaugurate the prestigious University of Sheffield, an institution that would shape generations to come. The programme's design exudes regality, reflecting the grandeur befitting such esteemed guests. With intricate detailing and elegant typography, it captures the essence of this significant occasion. As we gaze upon this relic from over a century ago, we are transported back to a time when royal visits were met with great excitement and reverence. The opening ceremonies took place at Netherthorpe, where the university's foundations were laid amidst much fanfare. This photograph serves as a poignant reminder of how far our educational institutions have come since then. Located on Western Bank, the University of Sheffield has become synonymous with excellence in academia and research. Its rich heritage can be traced back to this very moment when its doors were officially opened by two revered monarchs. Preserved within Sheffield City Archives' collection (PAMP 322 SQ), this image is not just a testament to historical events but also symbolizes progress and growth for both education and society as a whole. Let us cherish these memories as we continue building upon their legacy for future generations.
