DO you recognise this scene from the early 1900s? The church tower and spire may be easily identified but the surrounding buildings may not.

This Edwardian postcard comes from Arthur Gunter of Merry Hill, Wolverhampton, and it shows a view of Sedgley, dominated by All Saints Church.

The church was built in the 1820s on the site of the original medieval church and it was dedicated in July 1829. The rebuilding was paid for by the Earl of Dudley and cost £11,000, a great sum nearly 200 years ago.

Please share any historic pictures and postcards of the Black Country you may have, contact dshaw@blackcountrybugle.co.uk, 41 High Street, Cradley Heath, B64 5HL.
