Tame Archive

The Tame Past Present Future project involved several individuals with interests and experiences along the River Tame, and many either gave or lent documents, pictures and books to the project. These are currently being scanned (where copyright allows) and will be added to this site. Copies will also be added to the Tame Past Present Future archive at the Library of Birmingham, which will be available late 2015. KEEP POPPING BACK to find out what new items we've added.
