Many people have come to Stourbridge thinking that they are at Stourport by accident.
Stourport is about 10 - 12 miles away from Stourbridge and is where the river Stour and the canal join with the river Severn.
Stourport used to be, and still is to a lesser extent, a popular day out destination for the people of the industrial Midlands.
Other than Birmingham, the nearest city to Stourbridge is Worcester. Home of the famous sauce, it is a river city and the Severn flows majesticly through.
Worcester is a city full of history, as the main pictur may tell. It has a wonderful cathedral and many old buildings which are all worth a look at. This is definately a place to bring your camera.
Another feature worthy of note and a visit is the Royal Worcester china factory which is quite close to the cathedral.
The photograph is of Stourbridge High Street. Apart from the removal of the tram tracks and shops changing name, there is not a lot of difference between then and now. Mc. Donalds has moved into the High Street though, with all its gaudy trappings.
