Black Country People

 

As part of the Home of Metal Festival at the Black Country Museum there were demonstrations of Nail Making and Chain Making during the day.

 

Meanwhile around the site there were other peple in period costumes, very happy to talk about their own experiences and also what it may have been like in Victorian times.

I think I must have been chatting too much to notice the people in period costume in so much details.

Your photos are great, such candid shots of the people in the museum.
Les Auld: They make such fine subjects Cherie you just have to take a picture. Thanks for the comment.
