One of Keith Berry's evocative phots of the Jewellery Quarter.

One of Keith Berry

This picture of the Jewellery Quarter in 1976 (yes just 30 years ago) is one of hundreds of extraordinary images you can browse online from Keith Berry. He describes the stash of images as:

A selection of my scanned photographs and slides taken between the 1960s and 1990s, in and around Birmingham,
Bromsgrove, Smethwick, West Bromwich and Walsall. You are welcome to add comments about, and personal
reminiscences of, the streets and neighbourhoods depicted. Many thanks to those of you who have already done so,
as it very much helps to fill in the fine details.

To look through them please go here. If you like what you see why not vote for this on upyerbrum. Hat tip to Brum Blog.

      Hi Singh,
      I’m afraid this is an old blog and I don’t have any contact details for Keith. You could try asking at the library as they might have something in the local archives.
      Kind regards.
