Wolverhampton is one of the best cities in the United Kingdom. The city grew initially as a market town specializing in the wool trade and became a center of mining, manufacturing during the industrial revolution. The population of the city is over a quarter of a million and the natives of the city are called “Wulfrunians”. Wolverhampton became a metropolitan borough in 1974 and became the city on 18th December 2000.
A large influx of immigrants settled in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. The center of Wolverhampton has been altered radically since the mid-1960s, with the Mander Centre (plans for which were unveiled on 15 April 1965) being opened in two phases, the first in 1968 and the second in 1971.
Here below are some stunning vintage photos of Wolverhampton from the 1970s and 1980s, capturing streets, roads, landmarks, and everyday life.
