Hi Phil.  -  I think the second photo is named wrongly,Cromwell St. and Rupert St. never crossed.They ran parralel together from Rocky Lane to Great Lister St. It could be Oliver St and Cromwell St.

You are of course right, that's what you get for trusting Carl Chinn (its from the Birmingham Lives Site), I thought there was something strange about the photo because I know neither Rupert St or Cromwell St head toward the Gasworks. Mind you its not the first time this has happened and he is not the only one to mislabel photos, its quite common.

Hi Phil.  -  The mistakes in naming the roads keeps the interest in the forum going, and gives us a chance to wrack our brains and memories.More the merrier and please keep the photo's etc. comiing.

blane,
 
I don't mind making mistakes, nobody is perfect and sadly our memory fails a little as we get older. Anyway of Carl Chinn can make mistakes with all the researchers he has then why should I worry, but it does bother me and I really must learn to trust my own instinct.
 
Here is the White Hart pub on the opposite corner to Wimbushes grocery store that should have put me right.

Hi blane,Phil
I have been doing a bit of mooching around the older post on this thread and found a photo posted by you Phil page 34 post #365 it seems to me that it was taken the opposite direction with the Rupert arms pub in Rupert st, as for the pub in the photo I can not recall but I can remember this one on the corner of rocky lane and Charles Arthur st or walter st

It is Rupert St looking down Oliver St toward Great Lister St, Saltley Rd. Well at least I think so, as for the pub. I think I remember it, but it was gone before I was old enough to use it. Though I do remember The Prince Rupert well

Hi Phil & all
I notice that the two photos on page 145 post #1594 there is a Wimbush shop on the corner of the said streets I wonder how many was based in the Nechells district? I know there was one at the junction of thimble mill lane and high park corner also one the corner of Nechells park rd and Trevor st. here is the photo showing the Wimbush shop and the old Nechells Hall at that location, as for the butchers next door is where my gran always got her meat from there.

Pudding,
 
Here is the full list of Wimbushes shops based in Birmingham in the 50's. I would imagine more were added in the 60's for a short while before they closed down.
