how absolutely wonderful maz....:) and what a great selection of photos you chose...

i see that one of them was of when a bomb dropped in hospital st....massive crater in the road...the rose and crown on the corner of hospital st/brearely st did receive some damage and apparently the locals helped themselves to the barrels of beer:Dpub re opened and was demolished in the 60s....mind you they didnt get the chip shop on the opposite corner:D

thanks maz

I think there was one of a crater outside the Barton's Arms in Aston [or maybe I got that wrong, but I think that's what it was described as and looks like it to me, but maybe it is by another pub]
and mom was living just down the road...unless it was during the time she was evacuated.

Well done Maz. My wife as just fell in love with the song
aww, that's nice
I want to make some more to older songs as I get time
I need to practice the timing of words with the pictures, but it takes time, as I don't find it easy
but it's good fun if people want to try it...you just need a mp3 song on your computer and some pictures or video footage...
most Windows computers come with Windows Movie maker on them

master brummie
yes, sure
I always thought it was outside the Barton's Arms because of what it said where I found it [can't remember where that was now :)]
but it sounds like that may have been wrong information then

it actually gave a date too
Bartons Arms 17 Oct 1940

hope this is the right one
