Mike Jee's Balsall Heath As It Was


Proper Brummie Kid
Just wanted to draw the Forum's attention to Mike Jee's excellent article in the June issue of Carl Chinn's Brummagem, based on photographs he took of the area back in the early 1970s. The article is very well written, and obviously contains the results of a great deal of background research into the streets and their residents. Although I am familiar with Balsall Heath, I have now learnt something knew about the area and what it was like there in days gone by.
