I thought I’d continue sharing the hugely popular run of archive images today from the immense Gerald Reece collection. This set is a miscellany of shots of local businesses, shops and landmarks all taken around the mid-1990s, with some oddities thrown in for good measure.
These images have been scanned by David Evans from Gerald’s material recently donated to the blog, and show an area whose High Street and industry are still diverse, but beginning to decay and fade.
I thank Gerald and David for yet another remarkable set – you are a very wonderful and generous gentlemen.
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.
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.
