Yet again, the young David Evans has played a blinder and come up with some fantastic images of the classes and staff at Walsall Wood County Primary, which was the school that formerly existed in the youth club building at Streets Corner.
David has been in conversation with local lady Mrs. Eleanor Holland, who has kindly supplied the above images and the ones that proved so popular a few days ago. These 1950 and 1951 images sit well alongside David’s exploration of the building I posted a few months ago.
As is frequently the case, I’m fascinated by the background as much as the foreground. I think, judging by the angle of some of the shots, the famous Walsall Wood subsidence must have been worse than expected!
I thought your readers would like to some of the dear little cherubs of 1950 and 1951!
My sincere thanks are extended to Mrs Eleanor Holland (née Ellis) who has very kindly provided these photos.

My thanks to David and Eleanor for their time and generosity. Always appreciated.
