Eldon Street: The History of Victorian Darlaston and the Black Country told through the lives of ordinary people


This covers the history of Victorian Darlaston and the wider Black Country through the experiences of some 400 ordinary people in one street: the men and women who made Darlaston tick, who were part if its emergence as a thriving industrial town and who suffered from the Depression at the end of the 19th century. Looking at their occuptions, housing health, education, politics, welfare and their involvement in crime, it gives a host of fascinating insights into the world of our ancestors.
