Once known as ‘the Chicago of the Midlands’, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries West Bromwich was a renowned industrial town of a thousand trades without equal. Its bustling High Street also offered a range of goods and services which were unsurpassed anywhere in the Black Country, a reputation which can still evoke a sense of passion and pride among local residents when remembering ‘the good old days’. Many townspeople still eagerly recall those long summer days and evening spent attending the many and varied events held in the extremely popular Dartmouth Park, as well as a weekly visit to any one of the eleven cinemas which operated within the town centre and outer suburbs. Rekindle those lost memories once again by joining West Bromwich-born author and local historian Terry Price for another nostalgic walk down memory lane in this, his third collection of almost 400 old photographs depicting people, scenes and events in all parts of the borough over the last 100 years.

Founded in 1791 and in existence for more than two hundred years, the Kenrick iron foundry of West Bromwich, England produced some of the finest cast-iron hardware ever made. William and Clifford Staples' goal in studying the Kenrick case is to examine how taken-for-granted assumptions about class, gender, and familial relations contributed to the longevity of the firm. The authors' investigation uncovers three distinct political regimes of production that they characterize as successive forms of capitalist patriarchy. Indeed, it is contended that the Kenricks were able to maintain their power and their profits, to a great extent, because they were able to use patriarchy to solve pressing organizational problems. By balancing a concern with both the materiality of production and its ideological, cultural, and political moments, this book offers new insights into the nature of production politics, patriarchy, and the historical sociology of capitalism.

We’re leaving the Championship terminus now, but I’ll level with you; this is genuinely a journey into the unknown. Firstly, because I’ve never written on this type of scale in my entire life before – and secondly, I don’t know how on earth this book will be greeted by the reader. I just hope you enjoy it as much as I did preparing it all for you. I do know that many, many years later – perhaps even beyond my remaining years – a void in Hull City’s life as a football club will certainly need to be filled. To this end, I hope what you are about to read contributes towards bridging any gap that appears and becomes one story of many that can be treasured by those that experienced the rich trappings of English top flight football for the first time ever in Hull City’s life. I’d like this book to be one that can reflect on our inaugural experience and provide just one insight to what it is like to support our great club amongst the cream of England’s finest teams. From Saturday May 24th 2008 to the exact same point one year later, this is a 12 month voyage that will herald Hull City being in the Premier League for the first time ever. To the writer and the reader, neither one of us are actually aware of where this embarkation is taking us. Every account written is monitored as and when it happened. All that remains to be stated before commencing your journey through this book is; you can be one hundred percent assured – “This is the best trip, we’ve ever been on.” And that’s a fact.
