    I rediscovered this delightful  story from George, on his reminiscence, of life around Springfields and I would like to share it with members that haven’t seen it before.

    The very nature of life then meant you were in often in touch with your neighbours – after all, you shared a lot with them. I doubt the modern inhabitants of Springfields have that same sense of neighbourliness, though life today is based on individualism, an often cause of loneliness.
    I’d imagine the students in the Victoria Halls tower block have their own type of neighbourliness, though removed from that of George and his memories.
    Again, a shame to see the disappearance of an old area in the name of ‘progress’.

    Thank you, Bill.

    It’s not often anything I do is referred  to as delightful. Not even by me.

     

    Regards, George.

    Hi George Glad to see your are back I have been meaning to ring you I hope you and Pat are both well. Your sparring partner in Australia David has missed you and sends his best Wishes.

    Its very quiet on our site at present with the majority of followers of Wolverhamptons past seem to find it more easier to banter to one another on Facebook,  I do have a look at Wolverhampton in old Photographs and have put a few links on it to our site. But up to now not had much response.

    I thought a little weekly quiz might attract more interest , but thats not really took of either at present. But I shall keep on and as I said before Glad to have you back.

    Hi Colin

    You have made my day. I was beginning to despair of the lack of interest in Lost Wolverhampton and was going to drop the forum But I will keep it open and endeavour to find more to encourage more comments All the best for Christmas.

    Hello Wishbone, the photographs you refer to, in fact nearly all the photographs I used were from the Archives. If you can’t find them in the files there are a couple of boxes that are marked as unknown. I usually make a point of looking at them to see if anything rings a bell. Also not all photographs are on the net so you really need to visit the Archives. Regards, George.
