small heath- street party


New Member
hi all, apologies if this is the wrong place.
An old family friend died a couple of years ago who lived in small heath- herbert road. He was in his 70's when he died so am guessing these celebrations for street party were at the end of the war in 1945.

I lived in cooksey r oad until 1968 and my nan lived in Herbert Road and the man in question was her next door neighbour. I am guessing the photos were from somewhere around there but I have no idea where

What great pictures of an era I can remember especially VE celebrations in Heather Road Small Heath. I know it's a long shot but are there any pictures of the residents of Heather Road during that period as it would make my day.

Hi homer999 fantastic photos reminds me of our own party in Athur st which ran parallel to Herbert road I would guess the last 3 photos were taken at the Coventry road end just above the bus garage with Bastocks funeral director's on the opposite side of the road. Regards Acklam19.
