Lyn, I was born in 1952 at Coralie St, which was next to Presscott street.
If you know where to look you can see where Presscott St was its been renamed.
If you look up "Reel streets" you can see a "now and then " photo.
I would be happy to meet you at the site and explain where Presscott St was.
If you want to take up my offer just send me a note and we can arrange a time and date.
To me its still home.

Hi Lyn, not sure what "Scottish overlay maps " are, I was born in Coralie St in 1952. I still feel at home in area. If you look at "Reel streets" "Cathy come home" you will find then and now photos.
If you know where to look you can see where Prescott St was, Which I would be will to show anyone that's got any interest in the old streets of Birmingham.

Hi Nick, fellow Brookfields lad. I used to live in New Spring st.
 
here you go nick a great little tool ...all you have to do is to move the blue dot which will then make the map fade in and out from a map of when the streets were there to what is there now..ive spent hours using this facility...i have hopefully left it on prescott st...enjoy

Many thanks for the map, I wish I could make it work. In my head I can still the streets around Coralie St and Prescott St. I am pleased that I've been able to show a number of people where streets were.

Thanks

A rather later image, Prescott Street was again far left of image next to the metal railings.

The second image was on the corner of where Ellen Street met Prescott Street.
