A quick one as I’m busy at work right now but here’s a puzzle from the immense and popular Gerald Reece collection I’d like reader comment upon.
This photo has been found by David Evans in the huge amount of material donated to the blog by Gerald. It is of Brownhills, and would be in the postwar: I’m 95% sure I know where it was taken from and that would make it unique and remarkable.
What I can’t make out is the writing on the back, which obliquely, doesn’t tally but is kind of related to the same area, in my opinion.
What do you think? My query is that simple! Where is it and what’s the note on the back about? If you have any thoughts on this2, please do share them – comment here, find me on social media or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.
I thank Gerald and David for yet another remarkable find – you are a very wonderful and generous gentlemen.
The donor of this remarkable image, Gerald Reece is of course a talented and superlative local historian, now resident in Devon, who wrote the seminal work ‘Brownhills – A walk into history’ upon which this blog stands.
