Thank you so much lyn, they are really good, so clear too. The roadway is very clean and the houses look as though they had been looked after.

happy to help rosie...yes in those days although folk didnt have much in general i would say that what they had they took pride in....could not afford to waste... and on the whole our streets were very clean as not much was thown away...sad to say unlike some streets now which have become massive dumping grounds...such a shame after all the pride people once took..

Lyn, you have made my day. I can remember all the locations.

One photo looking up Prescott St Laurels on right my parents shop on left next to gas lamp, when I was around 13 they moved the lamp I went to lean on it but it had gone.
Looking down the street, shows the our shop on the right I don't remember the house next door and the shop been bordered up, that shop never had any electricity. Another photo shows the our sitting room window missing, we had a fire in 1968.

Lyn, many thanks

Hi Lyn, you are correct we lived at 26 Coralie St which was on the corner of Prescott St with one side of shop/house in Prescott St with back door up the entry, shop door and house door in Coralie St. Your photos shows the shop in five photos and in one photo shows the two shop windows that were in Prescott St.

Lyn, once again many thanks

Photo #8 (in post #23) appears on the Winson Green to Brookfields site here http://www.winsongreentobrookfields.co.uk/prescott-street Someone posted on there that they have an undated postcard which suggests could have been called the ‘Prize Medal’ pub. They also speculate as to whether ‘Prize Medal’ was in fact a brand name for an M&B beer.

Two(possibly) unusual names for a pub. Maybe we should have a thread about this one as we don’t seem to have anything covering the Mona Stores ? Viv.
