    Erdington - Gravelly Hill - Slade Road / The Slade

    I so enjoyed examining those pictures. I saw my old school. Also what I think was St Thomas Road, George Road and what I think was Hilaries Road. The bungalows I think were prefabs in my day. Thanks for taking the trouble to put those pictures on. It certainly brought back memories Lynda:)

    Re: the salmon family I also have a connection on my maternal side to the Salmons. It could be the same branch of family, as the last person I have found of the Salmons was Laura Irene Salmon who married Henry Padbury. They both died in Solihull in 1974 and 1982 respectively. The connection was...
