David Evans – top contributor and one of the Brownhills Blog’s top correspondents in Walsall Wood – has again sent me some excellent scans from the Ebenezer Church commerative booklet. There’s been a fantastic response to these wonderful scans, and I’m absolutely loving sharing them with you. I thank David, as ever, most profusely for his generosity in supplying them.
I had some difficulty with the original images David supplied, and he was patient and good-hearted enough to send some other copies, which were just perfect, thanks. This material has been wonderful and it’s a joy to get it on line where it can be found and studied by all interested in the history of Walsall Wood.

David said this in his mail:
This is a copy of a scan from the booklet, a scan of a print from a scan… I hope this is better.

I will get in touch with my source to see if she can send the page as a scanned attachment instead of a paper copy which I might be able to try again..the joys of technology..as she had had problems with her scanner she sent me this photocopy, which might explain things!
Please let me know how you get on with this, though
The names of the original trustees for Ebenezer building were inscribed in foundation stones. I have seen the original trust documents which were found in a time capsule..a large whisky bottle, when the church was demolished some years ago. I have a photo copy of this “somehwere”.
