I’m indebted to reader David Evans who, in response to the enquiry and delightful photo supplied by Caz,has dug out a veritable goldmine of pictures for posting here on the Brownhills Blog. There are some absolutely captivating shots here, and I thank David most profusely for his kindness and time taken to scan them. If you know the story behind any of these photos, or know the names of any of the people featured, either mail me at BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com or comment on this post, cheers.
First off, there’s a great shot of a Boys Brigade soccer team from the sixties. This is worth perusing full size for the facial expressions along. It really is a cracking shot. David had this to say:
Your readers may be interested in this photo of the Walsall Wood Ebenezer Boys Brigade football team, from the 1960′s, and may be able to name the whole team!
This copy was sent to me from Adelaide, Australia by one the team!
David also generously sent me a series of six images scanned from a commemorative booklet issued by the Ebenezer Church in Walsall Wood. He asked the following:
Caz might welcome this photo page to look over… it is from a very rare 1952 booklet published by Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Church in Walsall Wood to celebrate the installation of the new church organ and almost every page has group photos. I have chosen these as there may be some people, still alive and somewhere in the world who will recognise faces.
The organ was dedicated in November 1951!
With kind regards
