"...John Bowen the son of a Blacksmith walked into Birmingham with a sack of tools on his back and laid the foundations for his success..."
Welcome to this website which has been developed so that more people may learn about John Bowen. My primary aim is to seek out people that knew John Bowen, worked with him or for John Bowen & Sons.
There are some old and new photos contained within the Photo Gallery and more importantly a precis of John Bowen's life found in the Bowen HIstory page.
Please either send me an email or leave a blog on the Guestbook page so that I know you have visited and so that we can share our mutual interest.
