Scans from the Acocks Green, Olton and Solihull journal 1911-1914


This magazine was published from late 1910 until June 1914. It gives a flavour of the concerns and the social life of Acocks Green at this time. There were debates about trams, buses, council services, and politics, there were numerous meetings of a whole variety of groups, there was advice on shopping. There was an interesting article on Gospel Oak Farm, and the 1911 Coronation celebrations in Acocks Green. These pages give a fascinating glimpse into the period just before the outbreak of war.

Where possible we have removed references to Olton or Solihull. We are grateful to Birmingham Libraries for allowing us to scan photocopies of the magazine held at Acocks Green Library.
