Farrs Butcher Shop

Does anyone remember Farrs Butchers shop? It was located just a bit
beyond the intersection of Witton Road and Trinity Road. This would be
in the early l950's. I remember going there a few times with my friend Sandra whose father ran the shop.

I really can't say if my friends Father ran for office. It could be the same fellow because I wouldn't think there were too many butchers named Farr in Aston. Also, it might have been his brother. My friend lived in Erdington I remember so I don't think it would have been him.

Your friend Sandra is living British Columbia, Canada. I am her niece. My granddad was Harold "Ted" Farr. They moved to Canada in 1956.
Hi, I know it was a long time ago since you posted this, but I have messaged you. Teddy Farr was my Dad's best friend, and his boss in the Butchery shops. I knew Sandra and Martin Farr, and went to their home many times in Streetly. Thanks. Gerry.
