Lynn, you are a star, I haven’t posted for quite a while. These are awesome, there aren’t any words that would express my joy at seeing these photos, l have experienced all sorts of emotions looking at them, god bless you.
Hi Lynn, I looked on Google Earth and put in Montague street Aston and the one off Great Barr street came up, however, as you say, the map shows no houses. If you look at the photo in #6, Montague street is slap in the middle.
Hi Lynn, thanks for your message, those photos look like the Montague Street off Great Barr Street, Montague Street Aston was only a short street, the pump Tavern was on the corner of Montague and Sutherland street and Waterworks Road was at the bottom. I have searched for ages to find a photo...
Thank you pollypops for that link to Shoothill, there are some wonderful photographs on there, I have found lots of photos of places where my relatives lived, Hospital st, Lower Tower st, and Windsor St, once again thank you!
Hi Anthony, this is the only picture of Plume Street I have ever found, unfortunately, it doesn't show a lot, it is one of Ray Griffith's wonderful collection. I would also like to obtain some photographs of Plume Street as a few of my ancestors lived there.
Thanks for the photos Lyn, so sad to see this pub destroyed, my mom was a barmaid there in the forties and fifties, I can still remember being behind the bar in the back room when I was small, later it was our local and we played many a game of darts there.
