A good reference book of Birmingham photos

Hi everyone,
I have been using the forum on an occasional basis for several years and have always been impressed by the detail that it contains. My particular interest relates to Victorian Birmingham and I would like to recommend the following publication to forum members.
It is a book by Dorothy McCULLA, entitled "Victorian and Edwardian Birmingham from old photographs" and covers the period 1867 - 1913.
I was born in 1950, and raised in Alum Rock - 22 Raymond Road, and later my parents moved to Erdington where they lived at my granparents house at 2 Station Road, also now demolished and replaced by an infants school.
I have not returned to Brum for many years and doubt I would recognise it now, but what I do appreciate is the description and pictures of Birmingham in the 50's presented on this forum, that I can remember (just !)
Thank you for this.
regards
Dave Hickman

Hi David

I am afraid you will not be able to visit Raymond Road again, as it is no longer there.
It has been demolished and built over. I used to know a family by the name Foyle but
I do not remember the number.
Regards
Harry
