Town Sparrows is a delightful film of childhood in Oldbury.
Made by Frank Wakeman in the 1940s, the film follows a day in the life of a group of Oldbury children, their journey to and from school, time at school, playing after school in Birchley Park and in the canal.
The film includes scenes of the old canal (now filled in), houses in the Albert Street area, the market and general shots of Oldbury town.
