Midland Montage: 26.11.1959: Tipton Sons of Rest

Jenny Martin interviews elderly men from Tipton who want the council to provide a place for retired men to go during the day.

Roof top shots over Tipton. Jenny Martin interviews Mr Charrington (?) who explains that the Vono company offered premises for the retired men of Tipton (the Sons of Rest) to use as a meeting place but the council turned it down. She then speaks to an unnamed 84-year-old man about how he fills his time.

Wikipedia: Tipton is a town in the Sandwell borough of the West Midlands, England, with a population of around 47,000. Tipton is located about halfway between Birmingham and Wolverhampton. It is a part of the West Midlands conurbation and is a part of the Black Country.
