Jim thats a cracking photo. The position of the photo shows the winding road and houses so well.

Cracking photo Postie, do you mind if I take a copy as I have been looking for one of Bolton Rd for ages.

I always seem to remember Bolton Rd as being a long straight road, but I was obviously forgetting where it met with Bordesley Park Rd. That left fork ahead would be Cooksey Rd wouldn't it?

gone but not forgotten
The Coach and horses on the Coventry Rd opposite Green Lane with a view of the passageway that led to the stables when it was a coaching inn.
The shops on either side are Cobees Textiles and Shelleys Chemists. Len.

What a strange coincidence that Postie's photograph that opens this thread should show Bolton Road, Small Heath and the third photo posted by Bordesley Exile should portray a tram heading for that very same road.

Lovely photos and showing a load of blue bricks!

Oh what a fabulous thread.........loads of lovely Small Heath images. I particularly love the one of Bolton Rd as that was a road close to my heart. I seemed to spend most of my childhood tramping up & down that road with my Mom visiting my Nan in Cambridge Terrace.

oh my father was quite enjoying those, some really epic pictures of years gone by he remembers, growing up in the area many years ago, and fine attention to detail. Well done to all involved.

Been trying to find some pictures of 'the Royal Oak' public house, no longer in existence, in Rey Street, cheapside I think it was, around 1930's period, it may well be here on the forum pages somewhere, still finding our way around.

Any memories, or pictures of this establishment would be greatly appreciated.
