Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 47 of the long lost freesheet, from August 1993 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.
Sadly, issue 44 (May 1993) is missing from the archive. If anyone has a copy we could scan please, do shout up!
This is a 24 page issue, with a bit of I Told You So on Clayhanger Bridge, a complaint about Ravens Court, there was a spate of car break-in and bike thefts, an odd archive photo from the Central Boys School, an award-winning garden and loads more.
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.
