I'm guessing somewhere on the Bournville estate  :o


Sorry Roy, you would be guessing wrong, although in Birmingham it's miles away from there.

I think the last greasy spoon I went to in Brum, was in Kings Norton Green, last year, good breakfast, and the staff running it were great.


I spend a bit of time in London, the greasy spoon is alive and well there, as well as the trendy eateries. Mind you, the trendies still pile in the greasy spoons at weekends. The Weatherspoons breakfast is lacking a bit these days, not as good as it was.

This photo was taken in 1906, it's not that much different today.

Old Birmingham / Re: Harry Lucas School

School closure 1969 - I recall a mournful article (I think in the Birmingham Evening Mail) on or about the date of the school's closure in 1969. The article included a photo of a sad Mr Walker (Headmaster) with the school's trophies in the background - one of these days I'll try and find it, it's a must have for this thread - no problem if you beat me to it!
Peg.
P.S. I believe the school site became a Joseph Lucas carpark, anyone know what it is now?.

The thing I remember about greasy spoon cafes was when they opened the first motorway stop they had a lorry drivers eating place and a motorists eating place. Though as soon as the public caught on to the fact that the lorry drivers were getting cheaper meals they all piled in there. So obviously the owners (was it Forte?) closed the lorry driver section.

Kingshaney,as an old Lorry driver,the best greasy spoon I ever found was in Northumberland,at a place called Wooler,it's appropriate it's we're all the sheep are loaded onto transporters for delivery.When I used to deliver Subaru and Lancia car parts found this cafe ,breakfasts were so big for aŁ1 every thing.Never needed anything else all day to eat.Mind you this was in the 80s
