English Labour Party politician Enid Hattersley had a lasting influence on culture and the arts in Sheffield. She spent two decades on the city's Libraries and Arts Committee, where she was driven by a belief that people should have the fullest possible access to great books, art, music and theatre. She played a crucial role in the creation of the Crucible Theatre, helped develop the reputation of the city's museums and galleries, and came up with an initiative for people to borrow artworks from them.
Here she is being presented with a gift on retiring from the Libraries Committee in 1980. In 1981 Enid Hattersley became Lord Mayor for the city.
