Steelhouse Lane, in the 1950’s looking toward the junction of Cleveland Road and Bilston Road, just out of view on the left were the Victorian built Parish Church and Schools of All Saints.

Across All Saints Road with its playground fronting Steelhouse Lane was the later built, Catholic Secondary Modern School for boys of ‘St josephs.”

This was probably the type of terraced house your dad once lived in. Pam.

Cooling Tower

In the background is the previously mentioned cooling tower of the Wolverhampton Electrical Company, seen here bathed in sunlight, standing at the rear of Commercial Road.
The tower in the days between the wars would provide hot water to warm the local youth, as they enjoyed a swim in the Birmingham canal alongside it.
