The bridges of Brownhills county…

Lately, I’ve been featuring a selection of wonderful photos from the collection of well-respected Brownhills historian Gerald Reece, which he’s kindly allowed David Evans to scan and share with readers here on the blog.

Earlier this week, we featured a photo that prompted a lot of interest, of Brownhills Bridge – what is now the Miner Island – taken just after construction in the mid 1980s.

David Evans asked at the time if anyone was up for a game of Name That Bridge, and has sent me a whole bunch of local bridge images, many of which have interesting backgrounds as well as subjects.

I thank Gerald and David for this remarkable set – it really is most excellent and for me personally has stirred many memories.

What do you recall from this gallery? If you have any thoughts or questions, please do share them – comment here, find me on social media or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.

Gerald and Cherry Reece: on whose shoulders all my work here stands. Image kindly supplied by David Evans.

The donor of these remarkable images, Gerald Reece is of course a talented and superlative local historian, indeed now resident in Devon, who wrote the seminal work ‘Brownhills – A walk into history’ upon which this blog stands.
