hi moss i have just edited post 19 for you...i was right about whitehead road being there...

Hi Lyn, just been looking through your photos on this thread. They are marvellous! Can I just say that the #19 photo was taken from Whitehead Street looking across High Street to Whitehead Road as you rightly say. You may remember how much of a stickler I am about the Whitehead Street thread as most people confuse it with Whitehead Road.

Just up on the left hand side of Bath St on the corner of Shadwell St was where I started my part time job at Rowland Keen in the gun trade in 1960. They moved a few months later to Lincoln Jefferies shop in Steelhouse Lane because of the impending development of Snow Hill/Queensway Circle. I have an early photo of that corner but cannot post it because it has no url reference.

corner of john bright st on the left..
I had a theory about that clock. There always seemed to be part of it not work. I think this was deliberate. Finding the bit that wwas not working was like having an itch that had to be scratched. Of course as you searched you kept seeing the name Guinness. The advert had worked.

Then below the clock you could see the slouchy zoot suits.

New to the forum. I lived at the Crown on Snow Hill as a child in the late 50's. My father Stan "Chalkie" White was the landlord. I would love to hear from anyone with memories or pictures of the Crown before it was demolished.
