A hundred years apart: Time, gentlemen please – and a grand clock tower!

Old friend of the blog Ian Broad has been in touch again to continue his series of hundred years apart photos – this is the fifth set – he’s creating as part of his lockdown exercise bike rides.

The first three images be seen in this post here, the second set can be seen here and the third wonderful set can be seen here. Last week the fourth set also caused a lot of debate on social media. These brilliant images have caused quite the stir – a wonderfully popular project from a great blog contributor.

Ian has previously supplied lots of material for the blog. including an eternally popular 1982 Shire Oak School leaver group photo outside the Royal Oak pub in Shire Oak and lots about the history of Ian’s family shop Tom’s Cabin, a fixture of Brownhills for many years throughout the 1980s.

Jill Manchester did this with great success a few years ago in Walsall Wood.

As usual, I shan’t identify locations, I’ll let readers work them out…
