Here's a quick one I've been meaning to post for a while, and it seems like a bit of a glaring omission in our local history knowledge.
In terms of local sports and activities, we've covered football, cricket, pigeon racing and dancing – but I don't think we've every really touched much on bowls.
At one time bowling greens were a common feature of local pubs and parks, and bowls matches were seriously competitive affairs, with leagues being hotly contested and the quality of greens being a major source of debate.
So, I'm asking here can anyone help, not just with the great 1920s Shoulder of Mutton image above, but with memories, pictures or other ephemera of the sport locally.
Please comment here, or mail me: BrownhillsBob at googlemail dot com. Cheers.
