This is Ron Davies's seventh book about the Black Country townships of Bilston, Bradley & Ladymoor. The area has a rich industrial heritage, which forged a strong sense of community among its residents, many of whom worked in the factories, foundries and workshops. In these tight-knit settlements, churches and chapels, sports clubs and societies grew and flourished, and the people who lived here - despite tough times and often poor living conditions - all stuck together. This collection of over 200 old photographs will make you pause awhile and explore some of the old shops, chapels, canals, pubs, vanished industrial enterprises, workshops and byways which are in danger of being forgotten.About the Author:
RON DAVIES has lived in the Bilston area all his life, apart from a short time serving in the forces during the Second World War. He is retired, but still takes an active interest in local history, art, photography and architecture. He lives in Bradley.
