Note: Many photos in the original 'Courtyards and Yards of Brum' thread started by Astoness (Lyn) were linked to Photobucket who recently changed the terms and replaced the pics with their 'third party' images as can be seen in the original thread https://birminghamhistory.co.uk/forum/index.php?threads/courtyards-and-yards-of-brum.40378/
The pics have been extracted out of Photobucket and temporarily put in this thread complete with many of the original comments. (THE PHOTOS HAVE NOW BEEN REPLACED INTO THE ORIGINAL THREAD)

That's the lot although there are some Photobucket pics in the thread which have been deleted by the members who posted them and cannot be seen.
Also the 3 private pics in post#8 (this thread) which is post#326 (original thread).

lovely looking thru these photos..... so am now hoping that there are still some photos around of the following(for my ancestry files!) - Trafalgar terrace, Latimer St (circa 1901), Owen St (Circa 1910), Brighton Terrace, Hope St (circa 1910-1920), Whitehead St (Circa 1920), Pickford St (Circa 1920's30's) any of this???

....and then in the 1950's - am assuming it was a newly built area (to replace bombed houses?) Dart St - just down from the Brum City football club!!

If you are able to post them Carolyn, lease post them in the thread linked below as this thread was intended to be temporary I believe.
