These photographs are printedMoreSmall Heath & Sparkbrook Through Time contains 180 photographs of the areas of Small Heath and Sparkbrook, of which 90 are old photographs. Some are printed in a sepia tone and some are printed in full colour. These photographs are printed alongside a contemporary full colour photograph which illustrates the same scene. The contrasting illustrations show how the area has changed and developed during the last 100 years. The photographs illustrate shops, schools, garages, churches, houses and street scenes, each photograph is captioned and the book has an introduction which gives a brief overview of the history of the town. As you browse through the photographs, you will notice the increase in the number of vehicles on the road, shops that once sold new goods are now estate agents or charity shops, and green fields have been transformed into industrial estates, houses or ring roads.
