Thanks Lyn, I look forward to going through from post 1 and looking at all your smashing photos again.hi trevor...when i have time over the weekend i will go through this thread but i think i have reposted most of them...you need start at post 1 and work your way through the thread but i will double check for any i may have missed...
mike thanks for the showing where no 48 was...just a stones throw away from farm st school which i attended..my gt nan lived at no 32 villa st which was a few doors from the church so a very good chance she used that shop
I'M 2 YEARS LATE IN REPLYING TO THIS THREAD BUT THE PUB ON THE CORNER OF BSW AND WELLESLEY ST IS "THE WELLINGTON". IT WAS MY LATE FATHER'S* LOCAL UNTIL WE MOVED FROM HOCKLEY IN 1954. ( *WILLIAM 'BILLY' BOW).
Boxing Day football matches still happen at Perry Barr park, but unfortunately playing fields had to be sold after vandalism.
Lots more info on the 1st A BB here https://1abirmingham.boys-brigade.org.uk/Contents.html
Mike,Have lightened the photo, as below with map c 1950. The pub in the photo is Bridge St west on a corner which looks like it is a very sharp corner, which would fit entirely with it being the Star. As far as I can see there are no other pubs in Bridge St west that fit with those conditions and that photo, so it must be the Star
