    My, My Billy this topic brings back some memories considering I used to travel this route every morning and return every afternoon on my way to and from St Chads college, Fallings  Park by  Trolleybus.  I can only remember the name of the Elephant and Castle pub, I have forgotten the other. The sports shop belonged to the Wolves winger Jimmy Mullen, I believe he opened one near Monmore green at a later date. Happy days!

    Dons Answers were:

    Hi Bill, this looks like the junction of Stafford St & Cannock Rd.

    The footballer would be Jimmy Mullen, the doctor Byrne-Quinn,

    The pubs definitely the Elephant & Castle, and possibly the Barley Mow.

    Answers:
    All correct except the Barley Mow – It was in Lower Stafford Where here on the right corner of Stafford Street and Cannock Road facing the Elephant and Castle seen here on this photograph was The Junction Inn.

    Doctor Byrne-Quinn, was Mayor of Wolverhampton in 1943.
    Jimmy Mullens sports shop was at the top of Crescent Row at that time.
