Award Winning Photographs & Poems From Englands Very Own Heart Of Darkness, The Black Country
Back in the day the Black Country was a huge industrial area of Central England. The acrid black smoke from the factories is said to have given the region its name along with the acid tongue of Queen Victoria, but it more likely arose because coal was at or near the surface.
Absorbing honest emotion, entrenched Illustration and acute moments captured across documentary film bringing into view the change of the flag-posts and Golden Age mostly wiped away – the canals and railways so important to powering Birmingham's industrial revolution and the development of England & the United Kingdom. Decaying vistas, time-worn monuments, or simply sublime snapshots in time - this selection of imagery and verse is history with a heart & a romantic view of the Black Country & Birmingham in the 1960's by the late Peter Donnelly, Photographer.
Verses added during the 1980's-90's as he looked back in retrospect.
