A great couple of Walsall Wood images have been donated by old friend of the blog Christine Burgess from her mother in law, Barbara Grant, and they’re real crackers.
The one above is believed to be St John’s play group around 1966 – names of those pictured would be welcome, it’s a gorgeous period photo.
The picture below is of preparations for I think, Brownhills Carnival in 1971. Christine said:
Ready for the carnival 1971.
My brother in law Harvey Burgess is at the back right hand side.

TomTom the Pipers Son is Chris Gilbert.
Mark Street is (I think) a flower pot man next to Helen.
Julie Hill at the front.
My thanks to Christine and Barbara for a wonderful donation – they really are super images, and from a period we don’t generally get much material from – so thanks a lot for lighting it up!
If you can name anyone, or tell us more, please do comment here or mail ne – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers!
