Historic footage.

Hello everyone.

I'm wondering if any of you have old footage of Acocks Green, (1900s-1950s) I've searched YouTube but have had no look.

Many thanks.

Hello JJLM,

Welcome to the Forum.
Videos, highly unlikely as they would most likely be hosted on YouTube, which you say you have already checked.
Images are generally, but not always, filed by the street name.
There is a Search Engine on the top right of every page.
Also check out the Acocks Green History Society here - https://aghs.jimdofree.com/ - no videos, but links to images are on the bottom of the Home page.
There are 34 videos of Acocks Green on Vimeo here - https://vimeo.com/search?q=Acocks Green - but whether they cover the period you mention, I don't know.

Maurice :cool:

There are many references to Acocks Green on the Forum. A Forum search will reveal the bus garage, library, churches and pubs plus names of prominent folk who have lived there.
