Lye & Wollescote: A Fourth Selection : Britain in Old Photographs Paperback / softback
Pat Dunn presents another glimpse into the history of Lye, Wollescote and Stambermill, small Black Country communities spawned by the Industrial Revolution.
In a collection of over 200 atmospheric photographs, the independence, sociability and humour of their inhabitants are shown, depicting alehouses and allotments, bands, choirs great gardens and industrial streets.
Focusing mainly on people, this title attempts to capture the environment and the spirit of these Black Country folk.
This spirit enabled them to rise above a frequently grim reality and has survived the monumental changes to the area over the last half century.
