Black Country Transport in the Early 1960s

The next meeting of the Society takes place on Thursday 10th February at 7:30 pm in St. Andrew's Church, Bilston Street, Sedgley. The speaker is Keith Hodgkins chairman of Tipton Civic Society and passionate Black Country heritage campaigner.

Keith has a unique collection of images covering narrowboats, trains and all kinds of vehicles on the highway over sixty years ago. This was a time when canals still carried some commercial traffic and British Rail mainline locomotives were regularly steam powered.

In the Black Country only milk floats and trolleybuses ran on electricity. Those were the days!

Join us for an evening of transport delights.
