How facinating 400 post cards wow you are so lucky. My husband lived in Ralph Road Saltley and remembers Adderley Road well. He also knows the houses that were demolished, they were called old but he never thought of them that way. If the photo is difficult to scan try photographing it just an idea. Thanks again:star:I will try and scan the photo for you,but as you will appreciate it is getting on for 100 years old and the frame is rather fragile. Mathew who is the soldier on the photo was wounded twice in the first world war .He lived in Cotterills Lane until he died in 1939.The rest of the PC's are quite interesting there are approx 400 of them of various sorts including my grans 21st birthday and wedding day cards.My Gran lived in Adderley Road from the early 1900's until the house was demolished around 1980
Thank you so much Linda. Charles who was with Ada and Bill was Ada's brother. He eventually had his own house. Michael said he was always a bit strange,the family cooked his meals and looked after him. He ended his days in THE 80's in a family orchard in Evesham living in a caravan. Michael's grandparents, William and Sarah certainly moved around. They had 12 children one died in childhood and another in her 20's. The Bailey's and Michaels grandparents are buried at Witton in an area together by the memorial. cross.Ada and Bill were listed at 86 Heneage Street 1945 -1960.
