You can still reserve copies for loan through the online catalogue.

by Marian Baxter and Peter Drake


Erdington has had many grand houses, some of which survive today, and labourer's cottages which have now completely disappeared. It developed from a straggling agricultural hamlet in Victorian times into the current busy modern residential area.

Erdington Volume II
By Peter Drake and Marian Baxter

This book is a fascinating accompaniment to the authors' publication Erdington, detailed above. This volume is a superb new collection of over 200 old photographs, many of which are published here for the first time, drawn from the Archives and Heritage section at Birmingham Central Library.
