    I did wonder if having a Gun Club attached to a pub was a good idea, especially after a few pints! Thanks for checking. I do have access to the Newspaper articles on FMP so I will check it out, though I oftern get side tracked reading the news of the day: fascinating! Joanne

    Wonderful Photos of Guildford Street. My Dad's family 'Lowe' lived in this street during the 40's and 50's. They later moved to Bartley Green in 1952.
