As you might have gathered, there have been some technical difficulties behind the scenes today, so a flurry of posts incoming that have been delayed – sorry about that. Sometimes life doesn’t go to plan and today certainly didn’t.
Anyhow, on with the history – last week you’ll remember I featured an image donated by top Brownhills sporting hero and historian Geoff Harrington, of his lady wife and friend on Warehouse Bridge just after the war. In that post I said I had a whole bunch of other images from Geoff, so here they are.
There are some wonderful photos here – I really like the Carnival Queen and also the Coronation King of Poeland. But the choir – featuring the late David Fullelove, Reg’s father (and possibly George) – is an absolute boster, too. They’re all great.
Thanks to Geoff for these excellent contributions to our local history record – so generous, and always appreciated, and also great thanks are due to the young David Evans who did all the running, and scanned them beautifully, too.
David has done a lot of work behind the scenes this weekend for which I don’t thank him enough: cheers old chap.
