1950s film of Willenhall


Filmed by Allan Carter in the 1950s and early 1960s these video clips give a glimpse of Willenhall almost 50 years ago. The quality of the film for viewing over the Internet is not brilliant but the pictures are well worth looking at.

The Carter family were well known in Willenhall and Ivor Carter, Allan's brother, was an active member of Willenhall History Society until his death. We are very grateful to the family for providing a copy of the film for the History Society.

The films give a fascinating view of different aspects of life in 1950s Willenhall, with humorous touches to make it a pleasure to watch. The original soundtrack has been used when possible. Further clips will be added as time permits.
