Stourbridge in the 60's and 80's archive video footage

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stourbridge in the 1980s! Are you on the video? do you know the punk sat outside Woolies? Or the two bikers walking up the Ryemarket outside Bewise, now Que Pasa? What about the group of people outside the old Yorkshire Bank in Coventry Street? Special thanks to Chris Armfield for providing the video, which he took personally in the 80s.

 

Stourbridge Ring Road construction in the late 1960s

Stourbridge.com has been incredibly fortunate in acquiring a video, produced by Stourbridge Council back in the 1960's, promoting the virtues of the ring road! Called "Order out of Chaos", it was intended to show what a vast improvement the ring road was in reducing traffic chaos in the town centre, even back then, and as we all know the ring road is a subject of fierce debate to this day. But the video is far more important than that, it is also a fascinating insight into life in Stourbridge in the 1960's. It's fun trying to recognise the various parts of the town, some are almost unchanged where others have out of all recognition. See also, Photos of Stourbridge in the 50s and 60s. We decided to split the footage up into manageable pieces and used Youtube as the delivery mechanism.
