Camp Hill and Sandy Lane Birmingham

:shocked:After searching for the past two years I would be shocked if someone could find some old photos of Sandy Lane and the Ship Pub Camp Hill before they were demolished for the dual carriageway.:rolleyes:any messages could be sent to my e.mail address [email protected]

Many thanks in advance JoanH

Hello, JoanH!
Here are three pics of previous Ships that sailed on that corner. The first two are arguably the same place - the first being a photo from about 1890, the next a fanciful drawing of the same, and the last a photo of what was there before the road works you mention. There are surely better pics, but I don't have them on my hard disc.

I would have to say that is a great weeks work. Except for Sandy Lane a few hours. I think that I saw the Ship featured here before and info connecting it to the civil war...ours.

Camp Hill Sandy Lane. Expert Brummie

:D Ma\ny thanks for the pics. of tghe Ship and I think you were right about its history. During the Civil War I believe there was a secret passage from the Ship to Highgate House, which just like some thick brummies have done, not realised just how much history there was in that area, and to build more roads pulled it all down. My Grandmother lived and reared 12 children in one of those tiny houses in Sandy Lane, unfortunately I was too young to take photos then, how I wish I had. Young ones today dont realise how the other half lived.:shocked:
