Thanks so much Ray , is that Plume st in the middle of the one of Holborn hill? I especially like the one of Union rd. Do you have any of Lichfield rd, Sutherland st and Montague st Aston?

I received this picture of Aston Cross from Raymond Hawkley who I was with at St. Mary's in the 50's. If I can get a date for it I will let you know.

Isn't that the Golden Cross pub in the pic ? - Ansells Brewery would be behind the photographer on the right ? And the old ITV studios on the left further down the road ?

There was a photographic shop there too I think was called Pelling & Cross

Ray. Fabulous pictures there. A few weeks ago I asked if anyone had photos of Stretton Rd, and I am pretty sure that picture 4 in your first post is indeed Stretton Rd and not St. It looks very familiar to me. Anyway, thanks for sharing them, and if you have any more, feel free to post them. Barry.

Ray. Silly me. I have just had a closer look at that picture, and on the right hand side I can clearly see it says Stretton Road. As I say, I have been after a photo of this street for quite a while now, so thanks for that. Barry.
