Old Birmingham / Re: Munns Brothers, Camden Street, Hockley 1965/67 ish

I worked at MB in the very early 80ís. I remember Chris Burgess, Prav Patel, both the Terryís, Richard Hankin. Other first names and nicknames.... Donna, Lorraine, Smutter (brothers), Malcolm (Hippie).


My claim to fame was nearly burning it down. Worked in D&P, splitting the cartridges and splicing the 110/126ís. Sparked a match to light a fag when leaving, shook it out and unconsciously threw it in the box of discarded backing papers and left. Remember Hankin chasing me down the road & smoke billowing out of ground floor windows. He wasnít amused. They made me work in the charred room for months after.


My name is Martyn Parker

Your copy is probably too big for the forum, it has to be less than 80kb in size. Is this the one?

Yes I've always found it very strange how these listed buildings that have remained empty for some time always seem to succumb to fire in the end.

The Fire Service are saying the fire is 'suspicious'....


Sad really sad , I saw Peter Sellers in A Shot in The Dark there in the 60's . Seems strange it ends its days

Hopefully, there is less structural damage than they originally thought & it can be salvaged.
