Following on from the previous posts featuring the excellent 1963 aerial images kindly supplied by Gareth Thomas form Lichfield District Council, I today feature two more from the collection. These are rather special, so I saved them for the weekend.
These images are from Lichfield District Council’s archives, and have been very kindly scanned and supplied by top council officer Gareth Thomas. Gareth really is brilliant and I offer my profuse thanks for these. To an unreconstructed map and local history geek like me, these are a gift from above, their donation a great act of kindness.
I shall refrain from making too much comment now, as I’d like to see how the conversation goes; but look at Clayhanger, Walsall Wood Colliery, Central Brownhills. Observe a community caught during massive change.
If you have anything to add, please either comment here or email me on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
