Gallery Photographs
A few notes on some of the images that appear in the photograph gallery at the top of the page.

Smethwick - Railway Subsidence [1927]
This image shows repairs being carried out on the railway line following the storm of July 11th 1927. Heavy rain and hailstones fell on Smethwick for over two hours causing two pools to overflow and flood the streets in the vicinity of the Council House. In addition the heavy rain caused the soil to subside beneath the railway line near Galton Bridge. Tons of soil fell into the canal below. Large crowds descended on the town in order to witness the extensive damage caused by the freak weather conditions.
