Midlands Historical Data preserves old books and maps by creating digital copies. It concentrates on Birmingham and the counties which surround it: Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire.

Birmingham Faces & Places was a monthly magazine produced between May 1888 and April 1892. Among its contents were contemporary descriptions of places in Birmingham undergoing change - such as the development of Corporation Street - and biographies of notable local worthies together with portraits of some of them (each annual volume contained around 240 pages, of which a third were photographic prints of places and people). There is no overall index to the volumes, but Midlands Historical Data has extracted a list of contents which appears on the CD.
