A new book of interest to everyone who enjoys local (Black Country) history and is fascinated by the history of show business.

Seven biographies of local people who were involved in “show business”, including the man who built the Dudley Hippodrome, the man who opened the Black Country’s first cinema, the girl from Wolverhampton who became a famous aerial circus star, and Dudley’s greatest actress!

Not forgetting Broncho Bill and his Wolverhampton-based elephants.

Discover the mysteries that surround their names. They come from a bygone world of fairground shows, variety theatre, travelling theatres, early presentations of film and the circus.
