At last, I’m getting caught up: Over on 365days there’s just been a huge update (sorry about the lag, back to normal this week) and I’m working my way through the email mountain.
While I go get some other behind the scenes stuff done (hopefully involving cake of some kind), I have here another gem from Tony Portman via the wonderful David Evans: A Walsall Wood Parish Magazine – from October 1935.
Look at the names. Then the advertisements. Some wonderful memories there – adverts for two Chemist’s and a cycle shop. Ah, how wonderful would it be to have seen my beloved lanes as they were then, on one of those new steeds?
Also, note the sophistication of the typography, which I find surprising. Wonder who designed it? It’s very good quality.
Thanks, as ever, to Tony Portman for his continued and wonderful generosity, and to David, for all his hard work, without whom over the last couple of months I’d have been absolutely sunk.
