During the industrial revolution this transport system developed to serve the steel, coal, lime, and glass industries that grew up so extensively. Now much of the area’s heavy industry has disappeared, but many of the canals remain—to be utilized as an integral part of the Black Countrys thriving tourist industry. Black Country Canals includes a wide range of photographs, many previously unpublished, and is accompanied by fascinating and informative captions which combine to illustrate the canals in their heyday and more recently. The book is sure to appeal to all who live in or visit the Black Country, and to transport historians everywhere.
