I’m a big fan of Sheffield. Sheffield UK, that is. I’ve lived here for thirteen years (bar a couple of sojourns elsewhere, but I’ve realised the error of my ways).
I was a fresh-faced 19-year-old when I was first treated to the ‘hello duck’ of the locals here in Steel City. Now, a not-so-fresh-faced me is looking at maps. Maps of the USA. Planning adventures far afield.
All this map-gazing has brought something to my attention. The presence of other Sheffields.
That’s right. Across the pond there are not one, not two, but FIVE cities bearing the name of my home city.
And Sheffield Pennsylvania
This needs further investigation.
