Jean Smith [Lyndon];69808 said:I remember the old Perry Barr Shopping center. There was a tall building with an Indian restaurant on the top floor. When I felt flush I would take my my mom for a meal there. There was a furniture shop called Williams's it was always in advertisements on TV. My mom was born over the road in one of the old back to back houses in Franchise Street. I have many photo's of her little house and garden. At the end of the yard was a wash house with a mangle and washboard. Jean.
