Fort Dunlop Rubber Works, Bromford 1928



Library services at Home (Birmingham's Home Library Service) have got together with some of their visually impaired members to discuss their memories and recollections triggered by the photos from the Britain from Above project. We have also added a few facts and dates for the project.



The large building several stories high is the centre of the Dunlop manufacturing company and all the other buildings from left to right are also associated with the manufacturing of the Dunlop Company.



Comments



Betty from Hall Green recalls cycling past the big imposing buildings on her way to see relatives in Minworth and she has vivid recollections of the wheels on her bicycle getting stuck several times in the tram lines that ran along the Tyburn Road.



Below is an audio description of the image. The narrator is Stan Hubbard.
