A Black Country Boy


Written by John Parker.

 John Parker was born in the small district of Toll End in the heart of the Black Country in 1921, the son of a clay miner and grandson of a coal miner and a boatman. For more than 10 years he lived with his parents and three sisters in a small back to back house at the side of Toll End canal. In 1931 the family moved to a new council house in Toll End and one year later they moved to Great Bridge which became the family home for twenty two years.
