Following the recent interest in the Red, White and Blue pub in Springhill, near Sandhills, the wonderful Gareth Thomas from Lichfield District Council has been true to his word and gifted some fascinating aerial imagery of the area, and south to Mill Green and Aldridge.
Unlike the previous aerials, taken in 1963, these images were taken 8 years later in 1971 – at 2:56pm, Wednesday, 8th September to be precise.
As usual, please take a good look, and comment on anything you find. Gareth has supplied an embarrassment of riches, of which this is but a small selection. Please join with me in thanking him – it’s thanks to donations like this that we’re slowly but surely building up a record of our community history.
