Image 37 – Another football team (Walsall Wood Inter – Inter School? 53-54) – I say, that lad on the right is a strapping fellow! Photo generously supplied by Tony Portman via David Evans. Click for a larger version.

In the eleventh and sadly final article of the series, here’s the last batch of photos from Walsall Wood Secondary School in the 1950s as introduced in this blog post here – these bunch have notes too, which will help jog memories so contributions are most welcome, as ever.

This set id two football teams and a curious group photo labelled ‘Walsall Wood Seniors’ – I’d love to hear what you all think.

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.

Please, any comments, contributions or observations welcome. Either comment here, or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.

Image 40 – This is actually a very curious group in a different location to the others. Seems to be staff and perhaps prefects? The character central in the black jacket caught my eye. Who’s that? Photo generously supplied by Tony Portman via David Evans. Click for a larger version.
