Not Birmingham Stars, but your picture of the inside of the house in bloomsbury st looked so much like my mothers old house in /chichester (taken in the 1980s) that I had to put it on. It was probably a liitle older (c 1810 if i remember) than the Bloomsbury house, but very similar

Hi Mike
Yes i see what you mean it is very much like it. Thanks by the way for your help with the map for my moms house in New John Street West.
I could not find the thread again to put my thanks there.

regards Stars

Wonderfull shots Stars. I have seen some before but these are much better quality. The gasometers on the inner circle 8 route are well remembered. The photographer is standing on a bridge and the railway is under. The cupboards beside the fireplace and eternal mantleshelf clock...we had the same thing. I think ours was originallly a raised coal fireplace with range on the side...they called the changes...modernised. Sash windows onto a bricked yard...that led to the loo...hmmm.
