    Love Lane went from Dartmouth Street and ran uphill past the side of Saint Lawence Church and over the canal bridge up to Aston Road. My A-Z's only show part of the Lane ( The lower half is missing ) Perhaps someone will post a better map, if not I shall post what I have.
    The Photograph, well I was a bit too young to recognise the building, and it was most probably leveled to the ground.

    Oh I did Lyn. Not what your thinking I walked down it many a time when taking my pets to the PDSA on Lichfield road.

    Lyn

    Now us ex Nechellites would consider Love Lane Nechells or at least Gosta Green, isn't that right Ernie.

    Here at the other end of Love Lane that used to run from the other side of Darmouth St opposite Lord St Nechells. are a couple of photo's one of the Nechells Church at the end of Love Lane St Lawrence's and the other of a Nechells firm Delta Metals preparing for a kiddies outing.

    Phil. Pleased your keeping well I was always confused ( STILL AM ) as to whether it was Nechells, Ashted or Duddeston. It started as Nechells when I was very young.

    Hi astoness ,
    i think the building in your pic is between holte st & oxygen st
    in love lane, if it is the back of the building was an open space
    which bordered lister st,
    there was a pub on the corner of love lane & aston rd
    the general wolf i think !

    All the pics are great, please keep them comming terry

    I also am glad to see you are still fighting fit and well, these pesky Astonites trying to pinch our streets. It always was Nechells and still is now even though the university have pinched it.

    Mike
    I very much appreciate your help with the address locations.

    When you have time I would be interested to pinpoint the location of 36 Love lane, 34 Love Lane court 5 and 1 Love lane court 5.

    Love lane seems very industrialised with quite a few factories and a church. In a newspaper readers letter dated 1867 I read that some of the factories around Love lane gave off some not very nice smells such as the Proctor and Ryland bone boiling works, the gas works and some factories using nitric acid called "aquafortis works".
