This exhibition uses Wolverhampton Art Gallery’s collections, including many of Fullwood’s drawings and etchings, to tell the story of the town’s redevelopment during the Victorian period. The 1877 Wolverhampton Improvement Act resulted in many changes to the cityscape with new roads laid out and existing buildings demolished. Fullwood, along with John Reid, James Tibbetts and photographer Edwin Hasler recorded the buildings before they were replaced.

New material from popular local historians Simon Briercliffe and Norm Keech also feature in the show exploring the town’s redevelopment, including the creation of what is now Lichfield Street, and the disappearance of the notorious slum ‘Caribee Island’.
