Just a quickie for those of you interested in local history!
You may or may not know that I’ve been writing a monthly local history feature for the Walsall Chronicle newspaper since 2001, on behalf of Walsall Local History Centre.
Originally these illustrated articles were entitled ‘Local Heritage’, and currently the somewhat different features are published under the ‘Memory Lane’ banner.
Last week’s feature was about the fascinating historic photos which can be found in old local books, these are often unique and the originals don’t often survive.
Anyway, in the article I talk about this and present some great images from the late Victorian volume ‘The Walsall Album’, which you can see in the local studies library at Walsall Local History Centre.
The image presented above will give you an idea of the article’s visual contents, and if you don’t take the Walsall Chronicle you should still be able to read this edition online until the end of this week.
See: http://www.expressandstar.com/free-editions/ and click on the Walsall Chronicle link – the article is on page 14.
Hope you find it interesting!
