Joe Davies was one of
Wolverhampton’s most well known and well respected
citizens. He had an interesting and long career in the
police, becoming one of the first policemen to work in a
police car fitted with a two way radio. He eventually
rose to the rank of Superintendent in charge of traffic
operations for the West Midlands.
After retirement in 1976 Joe
concentrated on his interests including steam engines
and street organs. He was a familiar sight at local
events with his wonderful “Lady Wulfrun” street organ,
which he demonstrated to Princess Diana in 1992.
Joe was a wonderful ambassador for
the City of Wolverhampton, who entertained thousands of
people with his street organ.
Joe passed away on Monday 14th March, 2016. He was 93
years old. The news came as a great shock.
