Tim's One Photograph a Day

The Former Fountain Inn, York Street, Wolverhampton.

Former Fountain Inn, York Street, Wolverhampton

Now a Business Centre.

I spotted this on my regular dog-walking route. Having a bit of an eye for detecting buildings that used to be pubs, I started doing some Internet research. Often, a quick Google can reveal much useful information on the history of a building in question, but initially I drew something of a blank. A few searches on revealed the name of a pub in this short road, that of the Fountain Inn. But, the only reference I could find had this at number 66. This address is No 33, so I did suspect a typing error – especially as there is no 66 in this road. With a bit of help from the “Lost Wolverhampton” Facebook group members, my suspicions were confirmed. It would appear that it closed as a pub in the 1980s. Just the other side of the bungalow on the right is the old Power Station from yesterday’s photograph.
