Wolverhampton -150 Years of “The man on the ‘Oss!”

Today 30th November 2016 Wolverhampton put on a re-enactment of when Queen Victoria came to the then town 150 years ago to the date. To unveil a statue  of her beloved Prince Albert a stride his favourite horse. The statue as always been known in Wolverhampton as a handy meeting place beside the “Man on his ‘Oss!”

Today we prove that history is popular and that history is an economic generator with some huge crowds crowding into see the Central Youth Theatre re-enact the whole scene including the on the spot Knighting of the then Town Mayor John Morris. Queen Victoria Knighted the Mayor making him Sir John Morris because the day was so pleasurable for her, and the townsfolk greeted her very well. It was a good re-enactment and I think the city enjoyed the pageantry as well as the Freedom Regiments displaying and marching.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Councillor-Phil-Bateman-MBE-Wednesfield-North-Labour-Party/300478026631398
