really interesting and visually great photos ellbrown, #1413.
I recall that Birmingham Council did hold an annual garden competition and gave prizes. I wonder if this was an entry?View attachment 83768Having looked through many of those remarkable old street photos I thought I'd like to include this lovely picture of 21 Witherford Way Selly Oak taken c 1960. Some in the neighbourhood called it a "poppy cock", but I thought it a labour of love and a picture of joy. I realize this post isn't the usual type but adds a different dimension to the thread.
halam st is a new one to me anvil man but i will see if i can find any for you and post if i can..I have been looking through all those historic photographs of Birmingham and I wonder if anyone out there has a photo (prior to demolition) of Victoria Place Halam St Balsall Heath. My late mother lived there in the 1928 era. and I would very much appreciate the actual terrace or something close. Mikejee has kindly given me a road layout of that period.
