TERRY Johnson of Woodsetton writes the following in response to recent mentions of a well-known Wolverhampton pop firm:
"As a follow up to Brian Wollaston's article and photograph on the subject of Sherwood and Morris's pop firm, I have a bit of further information. One of the directors mentioned was Jack Wise, who I was driver's mate to in the early Sixties. Jack was a big shareholder in Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, and I used to give the season's fixtures out to customers as we went about our rounds.
"Featured in the photograph was Frank Hawley and his wife. Frank was the 'checker' at Sherwood and Morris and lived in the house opposite the depot, which came with his job. Frank was extremely thorough in his checking procedure. I believe he suffered a horrendous injury during the war, losing the use of one arm and one leg.
"Brian was right about Frank and his wife going for drinks each Saturday evening at the Fighting Cocks. There was a mixture of large rooms and small snug-type rooms and the photograph looks to have been taken in one of the small cosier rooms. I wonder who took the photograph?"
We have also been shown another memento of Sherwood and Morris by Graham Hughes of Codsall. It's a beermat (or perhaps a pop mat!) which must be at least forty years old.
