Old photos and vintage film are an excellent way to bring the local history of Birmingham to life.

Our previous section about Birmingham’s History in old photos and films took us up to the end of the 1940s.

Now we turn to the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. It’s a period of significant change and transformation in England’s second largest city.

When you watch a video on our site, it streams directly from YouTube. That means the person who uploaded the film gets an increase in their YouTube ‘views’ count, in turn making YouTube more likely to promote their footage to other people.
