The Arden Oak used to be my local when I lived in Sheldon.


A bit far out for me that (though could have got the 58 I guess.) Always looked more of an eating house than a boozer.

Hi my Mom and Dad were probably the last tenants of the Wagon and Horses. They were Tim & Betty McCarthy I think from 1975 - 1987 or there about.


The Wagon in Sheldon Pat? My Dad (Donal) was a fixture in the bar in those days.

Em,From when in my childhood I used to love to go like you into all those places,they were great Togo to.
I then started work for Marsh & Baxters in Dale End in the garage in 1955.
Every day I used to walk up into the city grab some hot potatoes for my dinner and gradually watch them pull down the lovely buildings for the rubbish they've put in their places.What a crying shame.


Good video ,ghastly buildings

Excellent video and music. That must be what the end of the world will look like if we all get wiped out by a virus.


Edmund...i used to spend all day in Brum on a Saturday going round the Bullring and Rag Market. Woolworths and the outdoor market were bustling. Great times in nightclubs in the 70's. You could get any bus from the old bus station which was in the main area.  I loved the art gallery and the science museum.
I went to see the new Bullring a few years back and never went again.
