Wolverhampton's Listed Buildings

17 and 18, 18a, 18b Victoria Street

Listing: No.17: Shop.  Early to mid C18. No.18, 18a & 18b: Shop. Early C18.

Comment: These two buildings are lumped together here, though separately listed, because their great merit is that they are an object lesson in what not to do with historic buildings.  The treatment of the ground floors is horrifying.  All the worst things were done years ago, when attitudes were different.  It is some consolation to think that this would never happen to-day - surely it wouldn't?
