This oil painting by local artist G Willis Pryce gives an idea of the rural nature of Handsworth and other surrounding areas of Birmingham in the early twentieth century. The view may be of Hamstead Road, although we have as yet been unable to identify the precise location, and would be interested to hear if anyone has more specific information.
