A long storey


This image was taken from the 1987 Domesday multimedia project by the BBC, and featured on the disc. It was taken by local teacher J.H. Poole from the top of Humpries House looking southwards, and is dated 3rd July, 1985. If we could locate the chap in question, I’d love to see a large version of this image. Click on it to see the original post.

This is something I’d like to expand on for a bit of summer picture fun, if any readers are up for it. Since I featured Steve Wilcox’s remarkable Walsall panorama last week, and Rose Burnell’s great Chasewater image, I’m looking for odd views, panoramas or shots from on high of Brownhills or the wider area. There must be some residents of Humphries House who are up for this, but there are lots of other high spots or unusual angles that we can utilise, I think.

These shots from Humphries House were taken this week by Phil Griffin, who was visiting the block. Phil has kindly allowed me to use them here. They are really really wonderful, and I thank Phil for them.

If you wish to contribute, please send any photos to BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
