THIS fine image of Black Country working people of many decades ago has been sent to us by Barbara Hazeldine, nee Morgan, who hopes that readers may be able to help her to fill in some details concerning it.
It was among the collection of old family photographs left to her by her father after his death, and shows his father’s key works.
Brabara explains, “My grandfather Lawrence Luke Morgan, born 1881 in Willenhall and died 1939 at 12 Gipsy Lane, is second from the right standing, wearing a suit. First on the right standing is his brother, George Rowland Morgan, born in 1884 in Willenhall.
and who also died at Gipsy Lane, Willenhall.
“Can anyone throw any light on who the rest of the employees were? I believe the workshop was at 56 Wolverhampton Street, Willenhall.
At the time of this photograph the Morgans were one of the largest families in Willenhall occupying properties all over the town. Now only very few remain, they have moved all over the country and indeed all over the world.
Can anyone help?”
