Mr F Mason, the Wolverhampton librarian, whose knowledge of the town and mastery of the sources of the library put all Black Country historians in his debt. Mr Warner of the South Staffordshire Building Society who allowed me to see the records of the Society. Members of the Wolverhampton Housing Department, particularly Mr Roberts who explained to me any of the intricacies of municipal housing. Finally I would like to thank Ted Lane, who appears in these pages, who has played such a significant part in the development of Council Housing in Wolverhampton and who this year celebrates forty five years as a Councillor.
