In the sixth serialised article of what will turn out to be quite a few, here’s the next three photos from Walsall Wood Secondary School in the 1950s with accompanying notes, as introduced in this blog post here – This time, I am including the handwritten notes by Tony himself below each image.
There’s also a bonus image here too from reader David Bunce, which is from the same period, if not the same set, which I’m hoping readers may be able to light up:
Thanks to David Bunce for that wonderful one. If it’s not from the same set as the Portman images, it’s certainly the same period. Let me know what you think!
I return now to featuring images in order. Apologies for the delay in this post, thinks still a bit behind, but I’m catching ups now.
I shan’t comment on the notes directly, or attempt to transcribe: these are clearly a matter for readers as they obviously raise questions as well as answer them – and the last thing I want to do is lead the witnesses!
Thanks to Tony Portman who generously granted access to a remarkable collection, and to David Evans for scanning them so diligently. People like you gentlemen are keeping local history alive. Thank you.
