Facebook Picture Album comments; Right up our street.
I hate to delete anything off THOW page, but when you comment on the ‘Picture Album’ rather than on the.’Picture in the Album, no one (including myself’) knows which picture you refer to?
”So what’s the problem with just leaving them there anyway?” I hear you cry!
Well, because everyone follows the last comment? (Understandable) and then there are hundreds! And I don’t get to see your replies as I browse the pictures? So, any queries posted there, I cant reply to, and that makes me feel bad! ………………..But I’m deleting now!
Don’t think me cruel and heartless, I’m doing this for your own good …. And I’m also ensuring your replies or questions are still recorded …. HERE!
Starting off with the Album; RIGHT UP OUR STREET! (linky)

And I did try to tell you; The History Of Wednesbury Rebecca, what picture are you referring too? if you comment on the picture instead of the Album I will know what you are on about silly billy! Xx December 30, 2012
The History Of Wednesbury Lyn Tambe, which one was your family home? Karen Rowley which road? Alan Rhodes which picture was your place of birth? If you let me know i can put your post up next to the right picture. This Face Book is a strange beast, letting you comment on the album is so crazy and confusing, but there is no way around it yet. If you click on the picture and then post … it will go in the right place.December 30, 2012 .. Why haven’t Face Book got a fix for this yet? Grrrrrr December 30, 2012

Heather Nightingale An absolutely brilliant collection of photos. But can anyone please help me, as I’m trying to find an old photo of our house. It’s 1 Vicarage Road, which is right opposite Handley Street and Ye Olde Leathern Bottel. It’s been around since the mid 1800s and we’re been told it used to be a sweet shop during WW2. Any help would be appreciated, thanks. 2 hours ago
The History Of Wednesbury Heather, coincidentally, last night I was searching (As I do every night) and i came across something in the Black County archives. Sadly there was no picture to copy for you , but it did say; A picture of Vicarage road cottages. It only gave a number (of which I copied down for you) that you can request at the archives? Ref No: PHS/8182 and go here to find the archive; http://blackcountryhistory.org/ PURE LUCK THAT I SPOTTED THAT ONE!
So, I know there will come a time when someone says; “Hey! Where has my post gone?”
You will then find yourself here …..
