A Century of The Black Country offers an insight into the daily lives and living conditions of local people and gives the reader glimpses and details of familiar places during a century of unprecedented change. Many aspects of the Black Country's recent history are covered, famous occasions and individuals are remembered and the impact of national and international events is witnessed. A Century of The Black Country provides a striking account of the changes that have so altered the appearance of the region and records the process of transformation. Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community, and illustrated with a wealth of black-and-white photographs, this book recalls what the region has lost in terms of buildings, traditions and ways of life. It also acknowledges the regeneration that has taken place and celebrates the character and energy of local people as they move through the first years of this new century.
