A CALENDAR of photographs from Wyre Forest’s past is on sale for the third year running.

Wyre Forest Historical Research Group have created the collection of photos from archive pictures and expect them to sell well before the New Year.

Chairwoman Gay Hill said: “In previous years we have sold more during the period between Christmas and New Year than any other time. The 2009 calendar was a complete sell out.”

This year’s cover and photograph for November shows the staff of Kidderminster Post Office, photographed in 1935 to celebrate both the silver jubilee of King George V and the golden jubilee of the building of the Post Office building.

Many of the staff can be seen wearing their medals. The post office was erected at a cost of £2,700 at the corner of Exchange Street and Market Street, on the current site of Wilkinson’s, in late 1884.

Other photographs of Kidderminster include children of the New Meeting Girls School photographed in 1917 and a joint VE party between residents of Leswell Street and Clarence Street, in May 1945.

Pictures from the calendar and the previous two editions were displayed in Kidderminster Library throughout December.

The exhibition featured a number of mystery photographs which were donated to the group, who apppealed to the public for further information.

Mrs Hill added: ”The exhibition was an ideal opportunity to get more information on our mystery photographs so we can include them in next year’s calendar.”
