Inherent Wolverhampton
She Was on Leave
A Wulfrunian Way
The Trolley Bus on Tuesday
The Missing Fence in a Rough Hills Alley
Digging for Australia
Kenny Bates Carried The Coconut Mat
Looking For Newts Down by the Speedway
Black and Gold, Gold and Black, Everywhere o' Everywhere
Outside the Monkey House
Another's Childhood I've No Wish to Steal
What a Treat to Dangle Your Feet
In The Back Room, With The Coal Fire Burning
My Uncle Bill
The Old Molineux Floorboards
My Green Rayleigh Bicycle
Under the Moon and the Stars at Nash Court
'Little old me' Winning a Medal for Eastfield at Aldersley
Looking Back, I Should've Kept The Old School Tie
The Aroma of Snellings Chips
The Rooker Avenue Cobbler
Sweethearts Alone in Torquay
Pretty Was The Girl I Saw in Parkfields
Peter Blakeney's Dad Couldn't Half Sing
Running the Wolverhampton Marathon
In 94 Here I Am
The Blue Railings of Bayliss Jones Bayliss's Sports Ground
An Old Fashion Evening in the Black Horse
She Came a' Courting With Me
My Ambassador Bowling Alley Days
"Hello Billy, Hello Billy Wright”
The Trusty Morris Minor
I Thought I'd Forgot Those Pictures
A Badge on a Blazer, a Shirt and Tie
Happy in Wolverhampton
Impossible to Run the Heart Out of Micky Hart
It Was Back in Parkfields
One of us said "I shall love you 'till I die"
I Walked Five Laps For Michael
The Bravest of Brave
Stones of Borth
A Daughter of Bilston
St Mary Were You Here?
As Usual She Had That Lovely Bright Smile
Hag, You Would Have Loved 'em
The Red Sky in Our Street
Just Me and the All Saints Road Sign
Old Wulfrunians Wearing Victorian Clothes
Give Me My Lifetime
On a Train From Coseley
My Mind Turns Back to Dusty Old Days

What thoughtful observations for a Wolverhampton kid. I have enjoyed most of his thoughts about schooldays because his school of Eastfield was always very active in sport. My school was Springfield always gave them a hard time. (MB)

part extract;
by Robbie Kennedy Bennett

I descend from a working class background;
I grew up in a town of my mothers line.
I live everyday a Wulfrunian way,
And there is nothing that I want that is not mine.
There are family names scattered all around,
Roots of mine are in this town,
Within the soil deep in the ground.
Goodyear company my grandad served,
Long service recognition was well deserved..

Painting of St Peters Church and gardens by Leslie Broadfield, descendant of the Williams line of Wolverhampton.
