The Cutlery Map
The city of Sheffield in the UK has a history of cutlery manufacturing which goes back to at least the 14th century. Museums Sheffield is celebrating the long history of cutlery making in the city with the Sheffield Cutlery Map.
The map explores the history of the people and companies involved in the manufacture of cutlery in Sheffield since the 18th century. You can explore the map by location, by cutlery object, by date or by manufacturer.
The map also includes the option to change the base map to either of two vintage maps of the city (1890's & 1930's).
