Meersbrook and beyond
Meersbrook Park Road and the Meersbrook area as seen from Meersbrook Park. Beyond is Sheffield city centre. Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) painted a similar view circa 1797 LinkExternal link from nearby Derbyshire Lane. Turner's painting was reproduced as an engraving, LinkExternal link published in 1798 by Walker. The tower to the right of the spire, visible in Turner's painting and Walker's engraving is St Paul's church, which was demolished in 1938. This stood on what is now the Peace Garden on Pinstone Street. St Paul's City Lofts building, under construction in the 2009 photograph and seen on the left occupies a site very close to the old St Paul's Church. In his painting Sheffield from the South East, dated 1836 William Cowen painted a similar view, this time from nearby Heeley Bank Road. A copy of Cowen's painting can be found in the slideshow at this LinkExternal link . For another photograph linked to an artist's depiction of Sheffield see SK3084 : Priest Hill
