Balsall Heath on postcards

Ccf22092015 00002

The picture postcard heyday, that ran from the late nineteenth to mid twentieth century, did not just focus on tourist attractions such as the seaside and historic towns and cities. It also featured places, such as Balsall Heath, that at first thought didn't seem to be quite as obvious. Yet when you look at the magnificent buildings here then and the roads and streets which were all full of character - then you can see why there were so many postcards of the area.

This section of the site will feature a growing collection of Balsall Heath postcards.
