This week, we’re taking a trip to Walsall for pictures from the past, but not just any old Walsall. Late eighties Walsall. A younger Bob could be walking these streets, I knew them so well at the time. This is a very evocative set for me, which I became aware of last weekend, when a link to it was posted on twatter by one of the local tweeting coppers – I think it was @PCStanleyWMP (PC Richard Stanley, response officer for Walsall Local Policing Unit, who also has a great blog). These images are taken from the Flickr stream of user ‘walsall_pete’ who appears to be a bus driver and sometime printer at the Lithographic. I take my hat off to him for a wonderful set of pictures, all dating from around 1988.
If Pete is passing, please do comment and say hello, but if you have any contributions, please do share them.
