This delightful little book approaches the history of Sutton Coldfield from a different perspective, with an unusual map of Sutton Park and also some pretty pen and ink drawings. Both the park and the town are charmingly described and there is also a smattering of interesting advertisements from the late 1880s.

This area guide will help you find out more about Erdington (and the rest of Birmingham) in the 1930’s. It was published in 1933 while Birmingham was still a County Borough. The opening page states that it ranked in point of population as the third city of Great Britain. It was ideally situated close to valuable coal and iron fields and has become a great industrial and commercial centre with railways and canals radiating in all directions. Its pre-eminence in the manufacture of all kinds of metal ware, as well as of other products of great extent and variety, has raised it to the proud position of being the virtual capital of the English Midlands.
This is a plan of the Town of Sutton Coldfield in the County of Warwick and of the several Farms and Lands adjoining thereto belonging to Andrew Hacket Esq.
Surveyed in the Year 1765 by John Snape.
