P.C.  Jim Jones was the tallest Police Constable in the Wolverhampton Police Force between the wars.

I met his family about 15years ago in Geoffrey Banghams Piano Bar at the rear of The Connaught Hotel Tettenhall Road.

They had traveled there to see Geoffrey as part of a family history search regarding Jim's time as a Constable in town.

I now have few pictures of Jim who featured in many scenes of Wolverhampton.

The first places Jim on traffic duty in Queen Square, the other one  I believe is part of a road safety project taken outside the old Tram/Bus Depot in Cleveland Street.
