Bombing - Victoria Grove, Ashley Street 19/11/1940

I am trying to locate any photographs of the damage to Victoria Grove / Ashley Street after the bombing on the night of 19th November 1940.

My Great Grandparents were lucky to survive but had to move out following the damage.

If anyone can point me in the right direction to find photographs I'd be very grateful.

Thanks

Jason

I'll reply to myself, but the information may be useful to others.

Birmingham archives have an excellent set of photographs, indexed by street. I managed to find a photo of Victoria Grove after the bomb damage in this.

I would also love to find an image, my family's home was flattened and they were buried in the cellar, fortunately the locals knew them, and knew where they would be so dug them out! All survived
