Memebers of my family during 1850 - 1890, lived in various house in Barn Street and what would haved been the back-back houses listed in census records as courts.
I'm trying to find any old photographs of the the road or courts, can anyone help.

Hi Astoness,
Thanks for your reply. The best I can trace is actually in what is digbeth, close to the dogs home. It also runs off Milk street. My Grandad lived in Barn Street and married a girl from milk street. Almost neighbours, I guess.
These address get confusing as they seem to be often miss spelt and the districts change

Hi Lyn
Thanks for your interest and trying to locate photos. Although Barn Street is perhaps a small street and of little national importance, I guess someone may just have an odd photo, tucked away.

I'm really sorry, it doesn't seem to be working , I cant see what is wrong it's the right size and format, it's just not picked it up. this seems to be happening a lot lately, I've never had problems before.

I know Mikejee posted an old photo of a shop & delivery van in Barn Street last year. I can't remember what thread it was on though.

Perhaps if he looks in on this thread he may repost it.

it's probably one of the photos that were lost, to save you the bother of searching further, if you don't mind I will post a copy that I have. It's doesn't show much of Barn St other than a local grocery & sweet shop and a delivery van with St Gabriel's in the background. But in cases like this where there is a of a rarity of photos it is better than nothing.

there seemed to be some sort of a hitch when I first uploaded it, so I made some alterations and it seems to be fine now.
