Willenhall Revisited 2012 - a Memory of Willenhall.

At the request of my 42-year-old daughter "to see where Mom was born and her childhood up to age 15 years" we made a nostalgic visit from Herefordshire back to HUMP-SHIRE as Willenhall was known, on New Year's Day 2012.
1938 was my birth year, Acorn Street was the place, a little insignificant street just off the main Wolverhampton-Walsall Road...but a happy little street of terraced "party yards" as they were called....sharing their wooden seated "privvies".. washing lines, and doorstep gossip..all gone now.
