I'm very much a newcomer to this site but have recently been researching my family tree and have come to a loss with regards to 180 Alcester Road and Moseley Terrace, Moseley, Birmingham (Worcestershire) B13/14.

I have visited the site which is now a council run car park (Moseley Terrace) and public toilet (180 Alcester Road - 178 & 182 still exist), I have found maps that suggest Moseley Terrace and two other terrace rows were on the grounds of todays car park until approximately 1950 and have read articles suggesting that their existence until 1959.

I would be most grateful for any help, knowledge or media contributions to this subject.

Kind- Regards

Hi Stewart,

A very warm welcome to you, I know the area you are talking about well. One thing you can be sure of is that there were not many back terraces in Moseley. I think the only one remaining is around the back of where once Moseley Terrace once stood and is off St Mary's Row.

These three photos should give you some idea what the frontage of the terrace was like back then, it's a pity the trams block most of it out. The latest photo even shows the terrace being demolished and is dated 1970. I hope they are of some use to you.

Regarding the trams. Phil's photo is dated 1949 and 1st. October that year was when the trams on the Moseley Road were replaced by buses. A bus stop already exists it seems.
Car 719 was on the short working to Moseley Village and is about to turn back to return to town. This tram was built in 1925 and survived until all trams ceased in the city in 1953. Another tram is on route 42 which went as far as Alcester Lanes End. There is a third tram: this might suggest the last day of operation for them, or at least a day close to that.

As the 4th generation of the Dry Family all ex Moseley likewise would be keen to view anything of interest about the village and surroundings. Attached my Great Grandfather death notice from 1936. My Family lived in Moseley from 1899 through to 1950.FEAAE897-1E34-442B-8B9A-3CBD0C25A608.jpegFEAAE897-1E34-442B-8B9A-3CBD0C25A608.jpeg

Small world. My dad was Jeffery Dry, of 9a Park Hill, my mum lived next door at 11a, my grandad lived at 56 Church Road, my grandma at 32 Forest Road and my Great grandad at 63 Church Road. In all I am 4th generation of a Moseley family though I'm in Solihull nowadays but using BHF to track down family history much as I can.

The Sorrento was a wonderful hospital. We would not have known about that then, as babies!! But later in life I had professional dealings with the hospital and came to appreciate the genuine kindness and sensitivity of the nurses especially to the young mums.

It's derelict now of course another old building gone with the times, I don't remember it at all from being so young, do you live in Moseley now or did you when younger ?
