Chamberlain family

They have open days a couple of times a year and wedding fayres etc. It is magnificent inside; my daughter's wedding reception was there in 2004. At that time there was a monthly 'fine dining' evening as well - not sure if those still happen.
Somewhere I have photos that I took inside on an open day; I'll try to find them.

Joseph Chamberlain's 70th birthday postcard. Re: Chamberlain family

I could not find this postcard on the Forum. It relates to the 70th birthday of Joseph Chamberlain on 8th July 1906. The day was commemorated by a procession through the city watched by thousands. There was also a programme of official lunches, public addresses and parades. Entertainment and firework displays were held in many parks. Stitcher's posts (#74 and 75) show visits by the Chamberlains to a park. The Chamberlain motto at the top of the postcard "I hold fast", essentially means "I will not give up". Joseph Chamberlain suffered a stroke not long after his 70th birthday and died in 1914.

Chamberlain House on Yew Tree Road near Queensbridge Road, Moseley is now the Uffculme School (Secondary Site).

Metal fences all around so a bit difficult to get photos.





New modern entrance

The old red brick wall in Highbury Park looks fully restored.







You can see here that the bricks near the gate entrance have been rebuilt since damage from 9 years ago.
