Walsall streets and buildings

About the group Detailing streets, places and buildings of Walsall

Created 11 March 2014

Thought this image had been added to the group, obviously not. Gives great views of the old Wisemore including the schools. An excellent picture of an area which is now virtually unrecognisable.

Another excellent picture that shows Park Street in the foreground before the railway was built over just up from The Priory Hotel. The tunnel out of Walsall Station going north was at this time much shorter than it is now.

Now I know what my mother meant when she used to say "we used to stroll over the golf links". Not strictly accurate as the course wasn't a links course, but I know what you meant Mom!

If anything this 1948 view is better than the other one saved. Shows in great detail the area around Edgar Stammers factory.

Not as sharp as some shots but interesting because of its unusual viewing angle.

This shot around Bridgeman St and Queen St is about as sharp as you can get, even see the Anderson shelters in the gardens, brilliant.

Clearly seen on this photo is the land opposite the Walsall Litho' that was later occupied by the Co-op Dairy which opened in July 1937.

Five years later than one of the other photos in the group and already the building next to the Paul Pry pub has gone along with the Jolly Bacchus pub in New Street.

A great photograph of the old town showing an area to the right of the pic' known as Gorton's Yard which was demolished around 1933 I think.

Difficult to think looking at this picture that the area shown between Bradford Street and the railway, was the site of the old Walsall Racecourse which ran from circa 1754-1876.

For anyone interested in old Walsall any of the photographs of the town on this website are worth their weight in gold.



This one shows the Highgate Road/Avenue area complete with Highgate Brewery, the windmill, the Eylands old house once known as Hopelands and many other sites of interest and all before the houses on the one side of Highgate Avenue were built. This area is of particular interest to me as I was brought up in Sandwell Street, very close to this area......but not quite as posh!
