Digital Handsworth

Drawing on resources from archives, libraries, museums and the community, Digital Handsworth offers a fascinating look at the development of this pocket of Birmingham from a rural village, with mediaeval origins, through rapid urbanisation between 1850 and 1940, into the multicultural suburb of today. Photos, personal documents, audio and film offer an intriguing glimpse into the life of the area and its inhabitants.
