Here’s a treat for the Brownhills Gazette fans out there – issue 2 of the fresheet, from November 1989 for you to peruse and download. I’ve had an incredible response to featuring these long, lost publications here on the blog.
David Evans, very kindly granted access to the archive held by former editor and contributor Brian Stringer, has been assiduously and conscientiously scanning them all. Every single issue. Every few days, I’m going to feature the next in the series. I’ve just compiled the next few into PDFs and I can tell you there are some treats in store – including the only decent photo I’ve ever seen of Holland Park’s lost bandstand.
Cheers to Brian and David for sharing a wonderful thing, that’s part of our community history.
