The threshold of a new millennium is an ideal point to review the recent past of Wolverhampton, and examine what effect the last hundred years has had on its citizens.
Who could have imagined, as the people of Wolverhampton prepared to celebrate the dawn of the 20th Century the momentous changes about to take place, in industry, education and housing, through to sport and entertainment. We reflect on these events with people who experienced them and who share, with us a century of triumphs and tragedy, war and peace, hardship and goodtimes. Beautifully illustrated with photographs, rare archive film and modern day footage.
