Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 39 of the long lost freesheet, from December 1992 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.
This is a 16 page issue containing controversy over performance at Shire Oak School, the Gazette has a new editor, this Gerald Reece bloke gives a talk to the History Society, Oak Park Pacers make a run for it, a rather bizarre postcard in the archives section plus loads more. Please click for a larger version.
Note the advert for the Nishika 3D camera on page 4. Wonder what happened to that technology?
I note from the editorial panel a sister title was published for Pelsall. Does anyone know about that at all, please?
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.
