ALTON Douglas will once again be taking readers back to the 1950s.

The Midlands author has published More of the Fifties, a nostalgic look around the second city as it was half a century ago.

This latest title - the fourth to look at that era - features more than 300 photos freshly dug out of the archives.

Among the landmarks captured are the Birmingham Hippodrome and the Bull ring, but there also scenes from closer to home.

Photos taken in Yardley, Elmdon and Acocks Green also appear.
