In my youth it was on every wall.
Two evocative photos of the Victorian terraced block of three houses at the top of Parkfield Road on the Coseley U.D.C. side.
The outside two of which had been over the years adapted as small retail shops.
Picture No. one is looking west toward the Fighting Cocks Junction. The shop on the left is probably a newsagents and is noted by the board outside with the weeks attractions at the Savoy cinema.
But its gable wall holds the main attraction with wonderful artwork encouraging passers by to buy local born grocer George Masons bacon . alongside an unmissable bill of fare at the Penn Cinema in Warstones Road.
Picture No. two is looking east toward Thompson Avenue and Bilston.
The shop on the right I would say by the window adverts was a sweets and tobacconists, and their gable wall is again enriched by art work supplied by the Wolverhampton Billposter Company, in this case, the family’s favourite Sunday evening meal of the day, complimented by Ogdens “St Bruno” grandads popular pipe tobacco.
