In this vignette Keith talks about one of his favourite photographs and takes the opportunity to reflect upon some important changes to the industrial and urban landscape of the Black Country. You can see more material from Keith’s archive in the collections section.
Ruth is the keeper of her father's extensive canal photographs that he made while working as Lock Keeper from 1936 to 1960. We will be sharing a wide selection of his work in the collections section, and also making a special film with Ruth talking about photographs from her own life. In this vignette Ruth talks about her father and why he made his collection. She also talks about her wedding day which involved a trip along the canal in her full wedding dress.
