Here’s a good one found by reader and local historian Clive Roberts, on the subject of Friezlane Lane Working Men’s Club, which I made an appeal for information about last week.
Clive found this image in some photos he’d taken of archived newspaper material. The date is 1957, and the source, the Walsall Observer. The quality isn’t brilliant, but the image cleaned up reasonably well.
Mr. W. Armitage, president of Friezland Lane Workingmen’s Club, Brownhills, presents Mr. F. Breeden (left) with a cheque for £50 on the occasion of his retirement as Secretary to the club. Mr. Breedon, who lives at 152, Lichfield Road, Walsall Wood, has been Secretary for 30 years.
On his right is Mr. J Hession, a Vice-President, and seated (left) is Mr. J Webster, the new Secretary.
