    Definately Shaftmoor Lane Dek and Lyn. The buildings are still there right by the junction of Oulton Blvd. They have hardly changed at all.

    Just noticed that there is a cafe there called Boulevard Cafe which I didn't notice before but it confirms what I said above.

    Several pics I can relate to there Lyn. My mom was born and grew up in Clifton Road and went to Upper Thomas Street School - although it was more than 50 years before these photos were taken.

    Lyn, agree with Chocks the Shaftmoor Lane is definitely correct, it does still look the same, mom will confirm that I am sure, she grew up on Olton Boulevard.
