• Quarry Bank: Past & Present - Ned Williams

QUARRY BANK PAST & PRESENT is the second book produced by The History Press devoted to the recent history of this Black Country township. Two hundred and fifty pictures bring you a glimpse of the many diverse facets of life in Quarry Bank. It may be a small place, but everything within its boundaries is experienced in great variety: of pubs, schools, workplaces, churches, landscapes and land use. The Mount Pleasant Local History Group, led by Ned Williams, have been exploring the past and present life and times of Quarry Bank for several years. The group has often been frustrated in its search for local photographs, yet once the photographs found have been assembled in a collection such as this the group feels it has something worth sharing. We hope you will delight in glimpses of carnivals, school days, pigeon flying, Sunday schools, shops and people. The past and the present are connected in so many ways, and in a small community so many people's lives are interconnected. In the 'real world' of Quarry Bank every part of the township is connected to other parts, often by a mysterious network of footpaths. We feel confident you will be able to 'connect' with many pictures in this book: plunge into this treasure island called Quarry Bank.
