Regular readers will remember that last Autumn, there was an exhibition at Walsall Local History Centre featuring a whole tranche of of historic Brownhills photos and ephemera from the civic collection. This had proven to be so successful, that the top operatives at the town archives have decided to set many of the exhibits up on show in Brownhills Library, at the Parkview Centre, from now until the end of February 2014.

EXHIBITION WILL BRING BROWNHILLS PAST INTO FOCUS
A new exhibition offering a taste of Brownhills history is set to open at Walsall Local History Centre on Tuesday 3rd September 2013.
The Centre’s fourth exhibition focusing on individual towns across the borough, entitled ‘Brownhills Past and Present’, reproduces thirty items from the Centre’s extensive local collections of photographs, archives and local studies material, dating from the Victorian era to the early 2000s.
The display is aimed at introducing members of the public to a few of the many thousands of historic items which can be viewed on request at Walsall Local History Centre in Essex Street, Walsall, which is Walsall Council’s archives and local studies service for the whole of Walsall Metropolitan Borough.

thanks for this information. I visited the library this morning, and yes, the display is very interesting…will say no more and leave it to others to see and enjoy for themselves. I was even given a chocolate by the librarian!
