My dad lived at 27 Wills Street in the 1940/50s. He used to say it was an old Convent/Schoolhouse. As it doesn't exist anymore & hasn't for some time now, I was wondering if anyone has any information on this address.
The only Elvins Builders that I knew had premises in Naden Road, just off Hunters Road.Ah , brings back memories , the building Lyn( In Post 9 )was i think owned by Frank Elvins , they were builders or the like, next door was a house that when i was a kid ,in the 50s / 60s ,sold Honey , which reminds me that once a bloke walked along Wills st with a great big BEAR on a chain ???
Greeting, I lived in No8 from 1937 to 1951 my parent continued to love there until 1963 when they retired. Do you have any history of the house, I am sure they had a servant at some time. Paultook these the other day...numbers 2 to 8 wills street...couldnt resist a sneak round the back
I do not recall a Catholic church in Wills Street. There was an elemntary school along from No 8, I went ther for a while until they were evacuated, probably in 1941. The Catholic Church was, and still is, in Hunters Road. There is a convent opposite and my mother taught there from 1926 until 1863.second Rods reply but there was a Roman Catholic/school church in Wills street Lozells Berner street end so that fits in
