Following yesterday’s post featuring the excellent ephemera kindly sent in by David Evans surrounding the Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Church in Walsall Wood, David has again been busy with the scanner and sent me more great stuff for publication on the blog. I’d like to thank him personally, and point out how popular that post was with readers. So much material has now been supplied that I’ll need to do a third post to cover it all, which I’ll compile over the weekend.
Please excuse me for not getting these up earlier in the day, but duty called.
First up, Mr. Evans has come up with an interesting picture taken of a group he calls ‘The Men of the Wood’. He has this to say:
This is a slightly more recent photo of some of the Walsall Wood “Men of the Wood”…a group of retirees who played bowls in a location which, I am sure, will be instantly recognised by readers. I hope that there are relatives of these good men who will welcome this reference to their grandparents, great uncles etc… who belonged to the days of the Coppy Pit in Walsall Wood.
Now there’s more here from the booklet I featured photos from yesterday. Please click on the images to see a larger version. David said in the mail that accompanied them:
I hope that this will also prove of interest as it contains dates, names, and some interesting photos….! The names mentioned may be some readers’ Walsall Wood ancestors!
Perhaps you can collate these into an interesting document to appear on your blog at some time.
David, I’d add that if you can scan every page and point out what order they’re in, I can reassemble them into one (hopefully searchable) PDF file if you like. I could then make that available for download. Just a thought.
