Thanks to a tipoff from top local history sort Clive Roberts, I’m able to share some wonderful videos that have just appeared on YouTube. They’re uploaded by user BulldogDave303, and although not Brownhills, they’re in and around Walsall and are really rather good.
Clearly converted from old cinefilm, there is some remarkable footage here. If Bulldog would like to get in touch, I’d love them to tell us more about these wonderful clips. I’d certainly like to than them for making public such wonderful film.
I know the Rushall ones will be of particular interest to The Stymaster.
