Continuing the scans of the Brownhills Gazette – I present issue 53 of the long lost freesheet, from Febuary 1994 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.
Another 20 page issue, when Percy Claridge bought some derelict shops in Brownhills, anguish over more food outlets, Potters Clay try to smooth over controversy, the great recollections of Jim Graham at 90, some Bradburys memorabilia, a mysterious archive picture, plus lots 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.
