Salvation Army Citadel

Salvation Army Citadel

William Gilbee Scott (1857-1930)


Burgess Street, Sheffield

According to Harman and Minnis, “this was the movement's largest building in town, with a theatre-like galleried hall, offices and meeting rooms. The rest of the block on Pinstone Street, was developed by the Army as shops and offices, and retains its original lively lively roof-line crowded with decorative gables, turrets, dormers, and chimneys” (97). The Salvation Army arrived in Sheffield a little more than a decade earlier, and by the time this fortress-like structure was built, it had four halls accomodating 4,000 people.
