Aynuk, Ayli and an­other

Black Country Bugle - - NEWS - By DAN SHAW

THIS week’s front page pic­ture was taken in Stour­bridge in 1958 and shows three old pals en­joy­ing a chin-wag and a smoke to­gether.

They are stood in what was Clock Gar­dens, at the junc­tion of the High Street, Coven­try Street, Mar­ket Street and Crown Lane, and be­hind them you can see the Old Bank, now a pub, and what was the Board Vaults pub, now oc­cu­pied by wine mer­chants Nick­olls and Perks. To the right is the Mar­ket Hall, with the fa­mous 1857 town clock just vis­i­ble.

Does any­one recog­nise these old timers? In their flat caps and muf­flers there are the ar­che­typal Black Coun­try blokes.

Three old men putting the world to rights in the town cen­tre of Stour­bridge
