Birmingham Lives

Welcome to BirminghamLives…

An exciting and ground-breaking collection based on the Carl Chinn Birmingham People’s History Archive. Bringing together a growing collection of thousands of letters, poems, photographs and oral histories as well as a range of memorabilia and ephemera, BirminghamLives evokes the day-to-day lives of working-class Brummies. These memories bring to life the city's neighbourhoods, schools, shops, work, personalities, housing, street life, experiences of war, games, dialect and family life through encompassing people of all cultures.

BirminghamLives is an ongoing project and aims to continue expanding through multi-media and to be a highly accessible and innovative key feature of the history of the peoples of Birmingham.
