I have no idea why I would save thes two photo's because I have no known connections or memories of the roads. The pictures are (top) 138-142 Church Street, and (bottom) is 55-56-57Barker Street. Both in Lozells and both from 1981. The houses in the bottom picture are from 1840.

Hello Lyn I have had a good look at this and I think it could be the bottom end of Summer Row it looks to run down hill to a fork in the road to the left would be the Parade leading onto the Sandpits (the tram route) to the right would be Newhall Hill leading to the Jewellery Quarter the road on the right would be Charlotte St.Dek

It was Summer Row, because the building on the right just past the tram/bus stop is the Shakespeare Inn on the corner of Lionel Street.

The two pictures on post #427 don't look like the same location to me. Might be the same road but not the same location.

The tag I have on my photo says Aston Brook St 1951, so would it be the junction of Aston brook St and Aston Rd North?

OK. then picture #1 above 'Summer Row' must be a shot of the Saturday Bridge in the distance and the row angled off to the right at that point must be Fleet Street along the canal. This picture taken from about the junction of Lionel St. with Summer Row.

I don't know, the angle of the distant building does not look quite right to me but the actual street view photo can deceive. This is the only way I can interpret the curve in the tram tracks.

The pubs still there as are the buildings behind it. Gees I managed to post a photo. After all of this maybe you should have a meet-up there. Can't read the menu. Roast beef and yorkshire pud for me tonight...with a bottle of Thames Embankment.
