Them trams could really get a move on. Shame about the unrealistic sound affects

Here are four interesting videos of Birmingham in 1958, difficult to recognise where some of the locations are.
What is that chap painting on to the cobbles in the first video?

Love this film. All my old stommping grounds. The Yenton, The Swanpool, The Plaza and Slade Rd all on one film.

Thank Goodness for the people who made these films and photos so we could look at our history.

I can't remember seeing this film before, unlike today you couldn't move for buses.

Some great old trucks and cars in that film as well as the buses. And that sailor walking along without his cap on should be up on a charge for that.
Thanks for posting that one Brian.

BFI clip of Birmingham from 1940's - 50's

#28 by Dooberry Firkin , Wed Jan 04, 2017 5:11 pm

Interesting BFI clip on the rebuilding of Birmingham - lengthy at 16 minutes but well worth the watch.

http://player.bfi.org.uk/film/watch-city...velopment-1956/

Doobs.


If at first you don't succeed, try again, then give up - no use being a fool about it !
