Dear Pedrocut, may I ask if on your copy of the sale announcement of 1900, can you discern the date for the 99 year lease of 179 Belgrave Street starts? 1863? And on the 1869 trade directory pjmburns Kindly supplied, that lists 36 & 38 Belgrade street for James Law. Also, for Ancestor Rd, can you discern again the date for the 99 year lease commencement, 1885? Thank you!
Mark. for your information the date of directories is the publication date. With more recent ones this is usually taken to refer to the year before, but in 1869 it might be more than one year (say 2 years) before
If you download Pedrocut's scan of the sale you can then read the date you require. It is 99 years from 24th June 1869

This aerial view dated 1938 appears to show the house marked on the map in post#2. Alcester Road runs from bottom right to centre left. Trafalgar Road runs from centre left to the top of the view. The house has a double entrance drive.

An aerial view today shows the house still there.

Wonderful photo, thanks so much. The entrance pillars were supposed to have two lions on them, great we can at least see the pillars clearly!
