September 1990 – Vandals & dumpers causing problems on old track bed

Brownhills Gazette September 1990 issue 12_000001

Brownhills Gazette September 1990 issue 12 – Vandals and flytippers plague the old railway line; that bridge used to be behind Taylors Cafe. Click for a larger version.

Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 12 of the long lost freesheet, from September 1990 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.

The Gazette was 12 months old here, and had truly evolved; the local advertising was strong, and the  issues were now bolder. Great coverage of the state of the old rail line and Brownhills Rail Action Group, a wonderful bit about the new play park at Silver Court Gardens (with photos) and Brownhills School Activity Week.

The history of how the Brownhills Gazette came to exist has been detailed in this post thanks to the wonderful John Sylvester.

If other bloggers want to use this material, can you please drop me a line first? I don’t mind, there’s just sone stuff I’d like to clear about the usage, thanks.

Cheers to Brian and David for sharing a wonderful thing, that’s part of our community history.
