A bust of Mark Firth, benefactor to the University of Sheffield, after whom "Firth Hall" - the ceremonial hall in the university - is named. Mark further developed the family firm founded by his father, Thomas, whose success was built on the manufacture of crinoline hoops! Mark died relatively young - he was 61 - and the Firth-Brown company ultimately became part of British Steel and was then hived off as Sheffield Forgemasters International, Ltd - which is still producing steel in Sheffield.
