A Jugful of Much Cowarne Cider

One of the joys of AVBCW, is the research you do for your local area. For sometime I’d been hunting through my many book cases to find the titular book, finally today I recovered it:

An excellent little book giving a very detailed account of rural life from the turn of the century onwards. And has many period pictures relevant to AVBCW:

It also details the seasonal work forces, such as the hop pickers who came down from B’ham. So this raises another question for AVBCW logistics – how would that have happened ? Would they have come, and if so what politics would have ensued ?

Another interesting excursion for AVBCW into local history. Some of the players might recognise the street scene…
