I wonder if anyone has pictures of this famous old pub 1910-1950 at the Six Ways end of Lozells Road or better still the little cluster of back houses accessed through a covered alley called Sandown Grove just behind.

My mother lived at 5 Sandown Grove when she married in 1937. I was just looking for some information.

Hello Wendy My grandmother Maude Oldfield and her son Howard and daughters Elsie and Olive lived in the first house on the left as you turned in from the alley leading down from the Lozells Road. My parents Ted and Nellie James lived next door with my 2 brothers Teddy and Gerald. They all lived there from 1940s to well into the 1960s. What was your parent’s surname?
Regards
Sylvia Owen (nee James)

There is a tremendous amount of information and photos here on BHF about Lozells, Handsworth and pubs. You will find the search facility useful. As many here avoid F/Book I recommend the search.
