Re: hare and hounds..kingstanding.

Are all these pubs your old stomping grounds Lyn. Hope I ain't stepped out of line by saying that. I must be careful what I say:rolleyes::)

Re: hare and hounds..kingstanding.

Two fantastic finds Lyn! In the first photo you can still see the fields behind the pub, before the 1930s development of the Kingstanding estate. The original pub is much smaller than I imagined. So there must be a third and fourth H&H, the third being the one with the Dutch gables, then wasn't it re-built again? Or have I got one too many pubs ......! :D Viv.

Re: hare and hounds..kingstanding.

That's a pity. I remember the photo you posted of a group of people in that very car park .... It was a group of mostly men, only a couple of ladies in the picture. Viv.

Re: hare and hounds..kingstanding.

Thank you for helping me answer a question...what is that pubs name. I am currently collecting oral histories from the Kingstanding estate and its landmarks. It is a shame that this pub is boarded up now but I'm hopeful that people will be able to recall it in my interviews. Can I ask you where you found the photos and who owns their copy right so I can ask permission to use them in my project. Many Thanks Chris Hillcox www.kingstanding.wordpress.com 07783903096

Re: hare and hounds..kingstanding.

hi chris...i would think that whoever took the pics i posted would no longer be with us and so you would not be able to contact them... so at a guess there would be no copywrite issues....

good luck with the venture...

Hi. chrishillcox.
One of the cottages to the left of the Hare and Hounds was "Ryan's Post Office" (Kingstanding Rd.P.O.) Ryan as he was known used to run about in an old three wheel van, it had single wheel at front and was powered by motor bike engine.He owned the field opposite Harringay Road where he grew spuds.etc and he sold them from an old shed just to the left of the gate into field.

Hi. Lyn & Vivienne.
Thanks for pic of Ryan's P.O.Should have mentioned I Was thinking back to the late 1940s re.Ryan's P.O. and Ryan's Field.The kids used to refer to Mr.Ryan as "Old Ryan" and we used to buy swedes from him to make lanterns.Pleased to hear the cottages are still standing.
Regards

The parents of a friend of mine Elsie & Bill Edmundson ran the Hare & Hounds in the early 60s. Previously they ran the Church Tavern? in Church Lane, Aston.
