The Wolverhampton Exhibition of Commerce and Services

Art Gallery

Select an exhibit or select EXIT to leave.

Several artists have painted or drawn contemporary scenes from Wolverhampton's past. They faithfully record long lost buildings and street scenes and are of great interest to anyone who is interested in the City's past. 

Today we take photography for granted and whenever a building is about to be demolished it will inevitably be photographed and preserved for posterity. There was a time before photography became commonplace when this was not so, and artists were the only people to record the passing scene. 

Sadly such works of art are not on display locally and often considered to be of no importance. To rectify this situation we have added an art gallery that will mainly display old Wolverhampton scenes. We hope you will enjoy your visit.
