From the front inside fly leaf: In 1959 Sir John Betjeman described Walsall as 'a borough which is obviously proud of itself' commenting that if the local council turned the High Street 'into something worthy of the charming and modest buildings... it could be made into one of the most attractive streets in England.' The High Street today differs from Sir John Betjeman's day, but although several fine buildings formerly in the town centre are being replaced by modern landmark structures, Walsall still takes great pride in its heritage. In ninety fascinating photographs, Walsall Then & Now illustrates the many changes to Walsall's streets that have taken place over the last hundred years and provides a fascinating insight into the town's past.

The book will delight anyone who has lived or grown up in Walsall, as well as people with a more general interest in the social history of this part of the West Midlands and beyond....
