I was very fortunate this year to receive the gift of some secondhand local history books I’d been after for quite some time, and I’m keen to share them with the readership of the blog. As is usually the case with these works, they were available in a very limited supply, are currently out of print and very hard to come by. As a regular pointed out recently, they are available at libraries and Walsall Local History Centre for perusal, but none are left for sale, sadly. I thank [Howmuch?] from the bottom of my heart for scouring the locality on my behalf.
Today’s images come from a delightful work entitled ‘Memories of old Walsall Wood’ written and compiled by Bill Mayo and John Salt, published in 2001 (I think) by Walsall Local History Centre. If you by any chance spot a copy in the wild, do snap it up, it’s wonderful.
