Every so often, a remarkable thing comes out of the blue – and so it is with this stunning gallery of monochrome images of Brownhills, donated to the the blog by reader Peter Booth, who’s been scanning old negatives and came across these fabulous photos he’d taken of Brownhills.
Peter wrote to me a couple of days ago:
Have been scanning a lot of old negatives recently and have come across a set of Brownhills that I took in about 1986-88. They are black and white and I have cleaned them up a bit on the computer got rid of all the dust specks and they don’t look too bad.
I can’t remember now why I took them – it was either a photographic club project that I was involved with at the time or it could have been for Gerry Reece who was always trying to get myself or his son Gary (who I was friends with) to take as many pictures as we could of Brownhills.
Thank you to Peter for donating this images – they are wonderful, evocative, quite unusual and of very high photographic quality. It’s a pleasure to share them here on the blog, and I think they’ll stir up a lot of memories! They must have taken a lot of work to scan and clean – it’s much appreciated.
