Description

This series of photos in the Images of England Series, this time by local author Alec Brew, depicts Wolverhampton, a central Midlands town. This collection covers the town centre as well as some of the surrounding areas, and records the changes that have taken place over the last one hundred years. Wolverhampton was a town of both heavy industry and vehicle manufacture. Coal, iron, and steel works were an integral part of the town's history, and there was also a growth of suburban estates as the town expanded. As well as featuring some of the important people of the town, the aspects of ordinary every day life are covered, from schools, work, and the fate of the local football team, the Wolves. All in all this volume is a must for everyone who knows Wolverhampton. For those who have lived there for many years it provides a nostalgic stroll down memory lane, while for newer residents it serves as an excellent means of discovering more about the community's history.
