Vanishing Kidderminster - should we preserve anything?

a talk by Ian Walker in 1969

A bulldozer starts demolishion work in Cross Street in 1969

Builder, Archaeologist and Kidderminster & District Archaeological & Historical Society member Ian Walker, gave this talk to the society in 1969, in the early stages of a period when large swathes of the town's properties were about to be demolished. Handwritten notes of this talk have survived, but not the illustrative slides. Photographs intended to provide a flavour of sorts of slides Ian Walker might have used have been added to a transcript of the notes. The resultant document can be viewed and downloaded, for private use, by clicking either the link below or the picture above:
