J.W Evans Silver Factory – the silver that helped to make Birmingham the second city
J.W Evans Silver Factory opened in the Jewellery Quarter in 1881 and helped to make Birmingham the ‘city of a 1000 trades’.
In this podcast Gala Albas New Museum School trainee at English Heritage explores how J.W Evans went from a flourishing silver manufacturer to a fascinating place of heritage. We hear from the people who worked at the factory, as well as those that keep its spirit alive today, and listen to how the J.W Evans legacy can live on.
