Yes, Viv, but not early 60s. I remember Sydney Brown & Wimbushes, but not the new shops on the right, and I left in January 1961.

Certain MidlandRed didn't pick up passengers within the boundary so no-one to shelter?
Well, there is a Midland Red bus stop just before the BCT shelter. Passengers for Wythall and beyond to Alcester and Evesham needed to board their buses.
I could catch an Inner Circle 8 from Ladywood, to Stratford Road, Sparkbrook and then catch any Stratford Road Midland Red service that went through Shirley to my home area.
The Midland Red bus stop is to the right of bus JOJ 203.

Don'tknow about Birmingham but in similar situation in Liverpool, you could use the Ribble buses but a minimum fare - enough to put any scousers off! Was it the same on Midland Red? Before my time in Brum.
