Elwell's Trade Catalogue (c. 1870s)

Wednesbury Forge in about the 1870s.
This image is taken from the cover of a trade catalogue produced by Elwell's some time between 1867 and 1875, and brings to life what Wednesbury Forge would have been like at this time.

Can you spot......
  • a water wheel
  • washing being hung on the line
  • Bescot Station
  • horse and carts
  • Elwell's own railway line
  • the River Tame
Pages from inside the catalogue........
