I cannot find a 105 New st on the online electoral rolls. It would be the New st that ran from High St Aston to Alma St, and the highest no. that the 1939 Kellys lists is 63. It is a short street and I cannot seen numbers reaching 105. Below is the c1950 map with numbering, which, though indistinct on this copy shows nothing above the 60s

I'm a bit confused here! Josie appeared to be looking for High St in post #1, not New St.

You are right jukebox. I must have been dreaming or something when I wrote that reply. Silly thing was no 105 High st Aston was actually on the map I gave. Below is the same map but over a larger area, and , as Josie says, Birchfield road leads on from High st in the top left corner. No 105 is in red.
