Hello Dek, I think that the ragged school in the photo was the one in Balden Road, Harborne which moved from Gem Street to there in 1902. Our relative was born and brought up in Selly Park and we think he may have been the little boy in the photo. I still can't work out how the villa team came...
yes I have managed to magnify the inscription and it reads Ragged School 1910-11 the only thing I can tell you is that it was in some old photos of a relative who was born in Birmingham in 1902. It has intrigued me so I am hoping some one out there may be able to solve the puzzle
I have an old football photo and know nothing about it except that they are cup winners and there is a small boy with a football with ragged school 1910 -11 written on it.Has anyone any information about the team or where the photo was taken?
