Wolverhampton and surrounds, 1920 – for @StuDavis

 

1920 1:50,00 new popular edition map of Wolverhampton, West Walsall and the Watling Street corridor. Click on image to view. I recommned downloading it.

Twitter user and all-round top bloke Stu Davis asked me on twatter this morning if I could sort a map of Wolverhampton and South Staffordshire like my previously posted Brownhills and surrounds map. Plenty of stuff of interest here, even to non-Wolverhampton folk. The railway bods will have a ball – note the two stations in the city – and Monmore Green seems to already have a track in existence. Notice that Telford doesn’t exist yet. Pity we can’t rewind that one a bit.

Edit: that’s what happens when you crop a large map down late at night: you lose track of the cut line. TiredHippo is quite right, this map doesn’t cover where Telford would materialise. Oops. Sorry.

    There are also stations numerous between Walsall and Wolverhampton.

    Telford’s existence, or lack of it, doesn’t make a jot of difference to this map, as it’s off past the western edge.
