The Carl Chinn magazine, and looking at the link for Biographies...

There is the biography...Sir Benjamin Stone 1838-1914: Photographer, Traveller and Politician. Carl Chinn has written his own short biography of the said chap for the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, but I had not come across the above book when I posted an "alternative" view of Mr Stone (Post 15)...

I had corresponded with Carl about the "alternative" view of Stone and he expressed interest in publishing it in the magazine. I have no problem with this, but it must be said how good this Forum is for promoting the history of Birmingham.

It is in a sense free, and has the ability for people to disagree and correct, and in doing so can unveil new insights into our history.
