Once known as `the Chicago of the Midlands', in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries West Bromwich was a renowned industrial town of a thousand trades without equal. Its bustling High Street also offered a range of goods and services which were unsurpassed anywhere in the Black Country, a reputation which can still evoke a sense of passion and pride among local residents when remembering `the good old days'. Many townspeople still eagerly recall those long summer days and evening spent attending the many and varied events held in the extremely popular Dartmouth Park, as well as a weekly visit to any one of the eleven cinemas which operated within the town centre and outer suburbs. Rekindle those lost memories once again by joining West Bromwich-born author and local historian Terry Price for another nostalgic walk down memory lane in this, his third collection of almost 400 old photographs depicting people, scenes and events in all parts of the borough over the last 100 years.
