An illustrated diary listing events and happenings in Ladywood for every day of the year
Norman Bartlam's long-awaited new book is a day by day collection of events and happenings in Ladywood from the last two centuries. The book is based on many hours of research into newpapers, magazines and logbooks, which have brought to light some forgotten episode's in the area's history, as well as serving as a reminder of how life was for its inhabitants in days gone by. Within its pages is something to appeal to all ages, and will provide a great source of nostalgia for all those who know and love Ladywood.
Norman Bartlam works as a teacher in the Ladywood area on local history, geography, and citizenship projects. He is heavily involved with local history (he runs the Ladywood Local History Group) and is the author of several titles in the Britain in Old Photographs series.
