hi brenda perhaps you would like to share some of your photos with us on here...thanksI was borne in Selly Oak and most of my family were. I was born in 6 Chapel Lane, my Dad was born at the bottom of Chapel Lane Opposite the Bus Garage and my Gran was born just down from the Oak cinima. My other grand parents and all my Aunts and uncles lived in Healy Rd. When I married I moved to Dawlish Rd. Mom, Dad my brother and sister worked at Cadbury. Dad worked at Elliott’s just after the war. My sister worked at the battery. Later we all moved to Harborne where I did. OST of my growing up. I have 4 Harborne Groups full of old photos. Are you on Facebook?.
I just tried to upload the photos if St Peters school Church entrance as accidently damaged. Message says images to big to send.. I'm puzzled.Yes, great memories for me. I lived in Poole Crescent until 1965 or thereabouts. At Peters school until 1958.Mr Lloyd was the then headmaster there. Mr Radford my last teacher. I recall the 'prefab' style class room's that ran alongside the avenue to Harborne Park Rd. Larry and Roger the twins lived near the hillyfields pub in Quinton Rd, they were my mates then. But Grove Lane was my favourite local spot, always popped into Kenricks Park, was a private little farm then with a small orchard. A pond was in there too full of newts etc. We got chased out by a grumpy old farmer!
Very occasionally I drive through that area, my grandparents are buried in St Peters cemetery. Elsie and Harold Smith. Well nearly in 2020 now, I'll never let these memories go.
