Scenes of Mining, Agriculture and Industry

Summary

Type Panel

     The façade of this Italianate building has three panels depicting scenes of work in the industries Wolverhampton used to depend upon. All three reliefs are very detailed: they depict large groups of stocky figures in contemporary work clothes involved in all aspects of mining, farming and metalwork. While coal was not mined in the old borough of Wolverhampton itself, the town relied heavily on the output of mines.
