Regular readers of this blog will be familiar with the photography of Ken Harrison, who on a number of occasions has kindly donated his photographs for our use on here. You may also recall and/or visited the exhibition of his pictures of Smethwick last Summer at the Smethwick Heritage Centre.
Well, you've seen his photos, visited the exhibition… and now you can buy the book!
Ken's evocative black-and-white photographs of Smethwick's listed buildings are now available for you to purchase in a variety of formats (including an e-book version for iPad which is an absolute steal at £1.99 plus vat). Follow the link here to snap up your copy.
Bearwood's five listed buildings are included, of course. Thimblemill Baths is featured, (and the accompanying notes provided by the Council's conservation officer Alison Bishop should be essential bedtime reading for anyone considering closing the building) as are the Thimblemill Library, the Abbey Public House, the Lightwoods Park bandstand, and of course, the Lightwoods House.
Now… go buy your copy!!!
