Over the years, many Willenhall postcards have been produced by local printers. They provide wonderful views of the old town, and give us an insight into what life must have been like during the last century. I have included a number of them here, which cover different parts of the town.
On the left is an old view of St. Giles' Church, and on the right is a view of the Tumbledown Bridge Inn which stood in Railway Lane, off New Road.

In the doorway is the landlord Arthur Wheatley, and his granddaughter.
