No. 9 of Sid Field was taken outside his childhood home in Osborn Road, Sparkhill, where there is a blue plaque.
In that case I would say William Henry Street, looking at Windsor street gasworks.John
Without giving anything away, I will agree that Saltley Gasworks can't be seen from William Henry Street unless you are about a hundred feet in the air to see over the top of the hill that Nechells Green is on. Yes Nechells gas works (Windsor Street) are in plain site across the wharf.
Sorry Maurice, when I saw Saltley, I knew something was amiss.Well, look at Phil's post #64 again. He didn't actually say they were Saltley Gasworks, and I never knew the area well enough anyway. What he was saying "right" to was my question where I asked if it was the name of the actual street that he wanted. So, please guys, don't get aerated as it may not even be Saltley Gasworks!
