Winter Sale – Regenerating Birmingham!


For the low price of just £5.59 get your hands on one of the most popular DVDs in our Midlands on Film collection; Regenerating Birmingham 1955 to 1975. Order now and have it arrive before Christmas.

Regenerating Birmingham offers an insight into the journey taken by Birmingham’s city engineer Herbert Manzoni and his team of architects and builders, and their quest to transform the centre of Birmingham from a bastion of Victorian elegance and civic pride into a thoroughly modern metropolis, through the most ambitious and radical building projects the city had ever experienced.

Using a selection of films preserved at MACE, Mike Mason charts the progress of this seemingly impossible mission and acknowledges the spirit and intentions of this noble and necessary project, that was to become the focus of so much negativity in the closing decades of the last millennium.

RUSTON & HORNSBY – A VAST ARCHIVE REVEALING LINCOLNSHIRE’S UNIQUE INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE


Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Ruston & Hornsby project aims to preserve the legacy of one of Lincolnshire’s most iconic engineering companies through the digitisation of photographic negatives and cine film, alongside interviews with former Ruston and Hornsby workers.

The photographs and documents which are now stored at Lincolnshire Archives and films stored here at MACE, form part of a huge collection showcasing the history of Ruston and Hornsby, which became part of Siemens in 2003. The archive spans the company’s 150 years, offering a rare and detailed insight into Lincolnshire’s manufacturing heyday and Britain’s industrial past.

This major heritage project in collaboration with Siemens, Lincolnshire County Council and the University of Lincoln has allowed MACE to catalogue, assess and digitise a selection of fascinating films relating to the company, extracts of which can be viewed online via the Lincs to the past website and MACE’s Vimeo page. Copies of the full films can be viewed by appointment at both Lincolnshire Archives and MACE.

To learn more about the project and Lincolnshire’s rich industrial history, visit the Lincs to the Past website here.
