This new collection of old photographs and postcards takes
the reader on a fascinating tour of the Small Heath and Sparkbrook areas
of Birmingham. Both mainly working class suburbs, during the twentieth centaury
they formed an important industrial centre with companies like B.S.A. and
Allday & Onions making a vital contribution to the war effort in the
1940's. However this also made Small Heath a target for Luftwaffe bombers
which led to much tragedy and devastation. Images of people at work are
complemented by scenes depicting the leisure activities of Small Heath
folk, from shopping on the Coventry Road to watching Birmingham City play
at St Andrew's. Click here to Buy
