Very possibly Mike. Pity though, I'd like to think they came from or were connected to a particular building or activity. Like the H&H ones Viv.
We've just been for a walk down Kingstanding Road and knew somebody would appreciate this. The Nursery must be getting a new sign and they've exposed the sign underneath.If you were at the H&H until 1982 Marc you must have been living there when I had a memorable visit to the pub. My aunt and nan (originally from Birmingham) came over to visit us from the USA. It must have been about 1974. My aunt, my nan, my mum, and I all went for a drink in the H&H together before my aunt and nan went back to the States. My nan commented about how remarkable it was that, sitting around the table, were 4 generations of women of our family having a drink together. Well it was the one and only time it happened, but when anyone mentions the H&H I always go back to that memory.
You might remember my mum (Nora) who worked across the road at the Candy Stores junction of Tresham and Kingstanding Road.
I started a thread on Cranbourne Rd School so I'll see if I can find it. Might bring back more memories for you! Viv.
