In 2013, as part of the centenary celebrations for stainless steel, a special edition book was commissioned. An extraordinary discovery at Portland Works back in 1913, where the Bailey of Sheffield workshop is now located, changed the face of the modern world.
Harry Brearley grew up in a poverty stricken family yet the stainless steel he discovered has left Sheffield's fingerprint on some of the world's most iconic buildings and inventions.
This 100 years of Stainless Steel book covers the journey from Brearley's childhood to the discovery of stainless steel and the huge impact it still has today. Through an impressive collection of photographs it tells the story from inside the steelworks, how it shaped the city and how stainless steel continues to play a major role in 2013 and beyond.
