November 2011 was a month with a little bit of everything. 71 images were slotted back into position as all of my collections got a photo-boost one way or another. Leading the way was WME Wolverhampton where the first additions for a good few months included a pretty wintertime shot of Bushbury Church, some more bridges for the Shropshire Union Canal and assorted views of the Flying Dutchman at Warstones and park flowerbeds at Wednesfield. Also springing back to life a little was WME Walsall where you can now find pictures of Pool Hayes Bridge (Wyrley & Essington Canal) and Arriva operating the 319 bus route in Bloxwich.
Elsewhere progress has been steady enough. WME Birmingham crept forward with a Northfield delegation representing both the railway station (trains, underpass and general station shots) and the wider area (the Great Stone pub and the local library both appear). WME Dudley took on board a motley selection covering Quarry Bank (the former Sun Inn pub), Wordsley (shopping parade at Wordsley Green) and the steps leading down to Lye Station, whilst WME Sandwell has been topped up with the likes of Smethwick Rolfe Street (platform and booking hall views), Tipton (war memorial and the former Boscobel pub) and the welcome return of Smethwick West. Even WME Coventry has inched along with assistance from Canley and Tile Hill railway stations, not forgetting the Herald pub.
Here then is the state of the stats with one month of 2011 still to go;
- WME Wolverhampton: Target 435 > 358 in place > 77 remaining
- WME Walsall: Target 208 > 163 in place > 45 remaining
- WME Birmingham: Target 330 > 102 in place > 228 remaining
- WME Dudley: Target 262 > 32 in place > 230 remaining
- WME Sandwell: Target 180 > 22 in place > 158 remaining
- WME Coventry: Target 80 > 6 in place > 74 remaining
Conclusion? Lots of hard work ahead in December and continuing into 2012...
