I was pleased to receive an email out of the blue yesterday from photographer and friend of the blog Peter Booth, who’s been busy looking through his photo collection and turned out these remarkable photos of Brownhills as the council was building what would become the Miner Island and Halliards Superstore in the mid 1980s.
Peter, you’ll remember submitted a fabulous and very popular gallery of Black and white photos of Brownhills just before Christmas. If you haven’t seen them, do take a look by clicking here.
Have come across these photos from when they were building the island and had just built Halliards in Brownhills – what’s now Tesco – thought you and fellow readers might find them interesting.
I can’t thank Peter enough for these wonderful pictures, and I’m honoured to share them here with readers. Thanks to the work of Peter and other local photographers, little by little we’re building up a wonderful record of out area. Cheers for taking the time out to send me such wonderful pictures – it’s really appreciated.
If readers have anything to add, please do comment here, or mail me: Brownhillsbob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.
