Back to the street scene again – this time the other side of the City. The church in the distance is St John’s in the Square as featured a couple of weeks or so ago. At the time, I had wandered up this road and made a mental note to come back. With the cobbled roadway complementing the old buildings, and sympathetic street lighting, apart from the car parking lines this view of George Street, Wolverhampton, probably hasn’t changed much over the years.

Slightly disappointing is a more modern building on the other side of the road, although at least some effort has been made to blend it in. You may just about be able to make out a round blue plaque on the building by the second entrance away from the camera. Apparently, the Villiers Reform Club met there in the early 1880s. Named after the longest serving MP of all time – Charles Pelham Villiers, MP for Wolverhampton 1835-1898.
