Bilston Town 1947, My School Days

A Memory of Bilston

My name is Pauline Powell, my maiden name was Bromley. Where I lived on the corner of Moseley Road in Bilston there was a farm on the corner of the road called Dickie Bevan's farm, can anybody remember it? Us kids used to have fun there. I was one of four children and I have fond memories of St Leonard's, me and my brothers were all christened there and a relative of mine played the organ there too. I attended Etheridge Girls' School, Fraser Street, Bilston between 1947 to 1957. I have been to trace some old school friends from years gone by, it would be fantastic to hear from them. On a Saturday afternoon we would all us kids go to the Saturday matinee, our mom would do us chip sandwiches to eat in the pictures while watching Roy Rodgers and Dale Evans.
