Viv 100 year old birthday at BCLM

100 Year Old Veteran Celebrates Centenary at Black Country Living Museum

04 February 2017

Today Black Country Living Museum pulled out all the stops for a very special guest on his birthday weekend: 100 year old veteran James “Vivian” Wollason.

Viv, as he is known by his family, was born right next to the Museum in Park Lane, Tipton on 5 Feb 2017, but never quite got around to visiting. So today, for his birthday, he and eight members of his family had a specially planned day courtesy of the Museum and its staff. Viv was personally greeted by his own chauffeur, Costumed Character Geoffrey Bramwell, who drove him around the Museum in a 100 year old Black Country-made car.
