Here are a couple of photos. My wife lived there as a kid in about 1957
and went to Alma st school. I believe the street is not there now, but
a tower block of flats is called Inkerman House is there now. I hope this helps.

Regards Stars

Does anyone remember Alma Crecsent which ran across Inkerman St.There used to be a Sweet shop on the corner.I lived at 27 Alma Crecsent and went to Loxton st school.When I was 11yrs old 1938,we moved to Kingstanding into a posh new house with a bathroom. Would love to see a photo of Alma Crecsent back then.

Have a nice day, Wally.
Hi Wally,
My Father used to live in Alma Crescent, he also went to Loxton st school. He was born in 1921, his name was Norman Hicken.

Hi Wally,
Thanks for the reply, He had a younger sister called Olive who was born in 1927, I am not sure when they left Alma Crescent.

Hi stars
I certaintly recall the building of that block they call Inkerman House we lived around on victoria road


When we got married we lived in Inkerman House on the very top floor of the block
The flat was bang on in the middle at the rear side the views was fantastic
But trying to get up and down was a night mare on that lift at asny given time of day or night
As you could immagine thank god at that time we only had one daughter then got to more now
Thank god we moved out as there was a decline within the area with rough sleepers
And gangs up on the landing drinkers

Have moved this post to the main Inkerman St thread. Coleman St has no connection to Inkerman St. Its relationship is shown below, Coleman st in red, Inkerman St in blue
