There really is too many posts and threads to trawl through to make sure I am not repeating a picture so here goes.

That's a very good photo Stitcher. I've not seen it before. I think photos like these give a good hint of how developments like roadways could bring such major change to a relatively quiet rural area. Viv.

Hello Viv, I have driven large lorries up and down there many times and it is hard to imagine it like the picture.

Like the photo Trevor. Have been looking at the map with the Burial ground on and think we maybe close or on where it was. Will go see if I can find that other thread I was going to answer. It wouldn't come up when I typed in search.

Memories of Birmingham - Alton Douglas

Perry Common Rec to the left and Bleak Hill Rec to the right. Think that was some sort of pumping station on the right. Keep going on that road for a bit and the Golden Cross pub used to be on the left on the corner of Turfpits Lane. Bit further and you come to the junction of Streetly and Short Heath Rd (65 bus terminus). Lived on that corner for20 years.

Me and my mum waiting on Kingstanding Circle for the Midland Red to Sutton. It would have been round 1959/60. It was taken on a Sunday and we're dressed up to the nines. But boy, do we look miserable - I suspect I might have been throwing a wobbly about having to wear that hat ! Viv.

Les Dawson did the grand opening of Taylor's on Hawthorn Road when it had had a big refurb. This would have been around the early 70s. Your ad Stitcher could well have been around that time. Viv.
