Thanks for this one, it was where I first met my wife at a jazz club upstairs on a Saturday night 59 years ago last April. Proposed on July 4th, married December 26th, rural Cornwall and returned home Park Avenue, Handsworth, that evening 2000hrs train from Plymouth to Bristol and then a train on 27th early am 0100hrs back to Birmingham. That evening we went to see Tommy Steele in Tommy the Toreador .......remember Little White Bull. I will download a copy of the photo for the family history pile Supposed to be a file, but still a loose pile.golden cross with tower...aston cross
Yes this is the New Inns as someone else has said, apparently my granddad, Harold Lee's second home, on the corner of Stuart Street and Nechells Park Road. Interesting that in the background the new style housing can be seen springing up beyond the Methodist Church.off nechells park road..could anyone identify the pub as it looks more like lichfield road to me...there again i stand to be corrected
Really great results Old Mohawk, has really enhanced this wonderful old photo!
Hi Lyn, just wanted to say it was amazing looking at these photos - the first one of Wainwright street/Thimble Mill Lane beautifully captures my Dad's old wood yard "Royden" and the second one captures Buttons Factory just up the road in Portland Street, the best years of my Mum's working life!phew thats it folks there are a couple with no locations on the backs but i have an idea where they are...will let you digest these first and post them in a day or so...
