Who was Frank Wakeman?
Well this is an historical gem, seeing people down by the cut in and around Oldbury. My dad worked weekends at Allen’s Yard in Valencia Warf of the chemical arm in Oldbury, repairing canal barges. Not far from the Blue Billy spoil heaps, the chemical arm was white with whatever was being chucked into the cut. As a kid I love it and could have spent a lifetime there. The industry, the noise, the smoke and steam, always something new to see and wonder at. Maybe I did never leave.
I would love to know who the film-maker Frank Wakeman was. Did he do more filming?
