Here’s a quick puzzle for the researchers out there, and think it’ll also be interesting to Mike Stackhouse, who I know has a particular interest in Watling Street School. A fumble in the newspaper archive has left me coming up empty – so I’m wondering if anyone knows anything about the clipping below?
Spotted by top local history ferret [Howmuch?] in the archives, it appeared I think in the Walsall Observer, but he forgot to note the date, and there was no other information in the paper.
The school in the background doesn’t look like the Watling Street School I know these days, so I’m wondering if anyone can fill in the gaps.
From the ladies hats, I’d say 1920-1940ish, but that’s a wild guess.
I’m after anything you can dig out, please. Comment here, or BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
(By the way, Mike old chap, haven’t forgotten your email – still catching up with last week!)
