This is a superb collection of over 200 photographs selected and informatively captioned by David Vodden. Walsall in Living Memory contains pictures from the author's own and other private sources, many of which have never been published before. Illustrated here are servicemen and civilians, the Anglo-American Friendship Week in February 1945, local industries, Scouting activities, events and familiar landmarks like the power station, the Savoy Cinema and the market. As well as pre-war and wartime images, modern changes are also documented including the rebuilding of Old Square and Digbeth, the development of the Civic Centre, the New Art Gallery, the bus station, Woolworths and the pedestrianisation of Park Street, High Street and Darwall Street. Even the most recent redevelopment of High Street and George Street features here. This is David Vodden's third book on Walsall and it is sure to bring back happy memories to those who know the town, as well as providing a valuable insght into its part for visitors and new residents alike.
