About this product
- DescriptionPat Dunn presents ather 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.

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.
