Birmingham: Not a Place to Promise Much by Donald Pigott


pdf epub fb2 djvu



The Birmingham of the 1920s and 1930s is recalled by Donald Pigott. Despite the unremitting poverty, unemployment and depressed economy, life in the city had many simple pleasures. "Homes Fit For Heroes", tea in town, the rise of the Birmingham Co-operative Society, preaching and teaching, and hobbies of the day, are some of the many topics recalled. The book is complete with some 50 line drawings by the author which recapture the spirit of pre-war Birmingham.
