walsall streetThis view of Walsall Street is shows roughly the same section of the road as the 1925 photograph.  There have been many changes and the scene is hardly recognisable.  The Wakes Ground to the left behind the bus shelter, is still used for a fairground several times a year, though most of the time it is a lorry and car park.

Many of the buildings which used to line Walsall Street have gone, though one, now a turf accountants, still survives.  West Midlands house, once a lock factory, now houses many small businesses in an innovative scheme to encourage enterprise and employment.
