What follows was originally written as a book, but never published. We have to thank Michael Albutt and Anne Amison for kindly giving us a copy and allowing us to include it here. 

To Edward Banks, Wolverhampton architect to whom the city owes much, this book is dedicated.

"Clearer than Scafell Pike, my heart has stamped on
The view from Birmingham to Wolverhampton."

                                                  W.H. Auden.
