At the jointly hosted event between MACE and Wolverhampton City Archives, there was a full turnout for the vintage film screening of the changing face of Wolverhampton.
A number of local people responded to our callout for film by bringing along their films for preservation and copying. Memories of the old days were evoked when we watched some wonderful old footage of the iconic Snapes tea shop, street interviews of local people by the legendary John Swallow and the changing road schemes and shopping malls of Wolverhampton captured on screen by ATV.

Some people even recognised themselves on film! ……Dawn Ebright below, recognised herself in a red dress filmed at the Wolvern Centre in the 1970s
