After my post earlier today featuring picture of the Brownhills Canal Rally in May, 1975, regular reader David Edwards contacted me via Facebook to say that he had a newspaper article relating to the event in question, which he’d scan and send me. David also contributed a picture taken from the now demolished Waine House, which stood near to Catshill Junction featured in the same article. It overlooks the yard mentioned in the last picture in the ‘On the cut’ set. This image, taken in 1983, shows the yard now fairly empty – the plant hire had closed, but the factories on the left were still operating, as was the car body repairer, Autocraft.
I thank David for his time and generosity in these wonderful contributions to The Brownhills Blog. If you have anything you feel may be of interest, no matter how trivial, please do get in touch. BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com, Bob Brownhills on Facebook or @brownhillsbob on twitter. Cheers.
