2020 – Spring Teaser Answer

We asked if you could identify the original location of this museum replica of a 1930s built garage in Sedgley Manor.

The original garage was built in 1936 for Alec Broome on the east side of Wolverhampton Road East, south of the then Fighting Cocks pub junction, (now replaced by an Aldi superstore). An accurate replica was erected at the Black Country Living Museum in 2008.

Alec ran the Conway Garage with his wife until the late 1980s.
