Old Birmingham / Re: Old Pictures of Brum

Picky, just come across your small but perfectly formed  topic - Key Hill Cemetery: final resting place of my Gran and Granddad and maybe others still to be found.
Fantastic Bus Stop Avatar! Takes me back to my commuting days to Harry Lucas School in Hockley, I lived in Erdington: 64 to Aston Cross then the Inner Circle 8 to Farm St, Hockley.
I visited the Key Hill Cemetery Catacombs alone one day looking for photo subjects when I was a professional photographer, I pride myself in being well-grounded but the experienced totally flipped me out.
Regards,
Peg

                   Funny you should say that I've noticed the difference over the years , back in the 60's you would have to throw them in the bath for a couple of three days . The hot bath was a good idea to mould them to you once you'd jumped in the bath wearing them .

Scipio, I got my first Leviís after I left school and have still bought Leviís through the years. Mind you the first pair got nicked off the washing line when we lived on Chelmsley Wood, I suppose I should be glad I wasnít wearing them at the time, being on Chelmsley. The last pair I bought was about 3 years ago, the material is not as strong as it was. Iíve seen reviews that the material in the Leviís this last couple of years is very poor, Iíd.be interested to hear your views on them?

Gwladmab My first pair of Jodhpur boots in the 60's cost cost me £9.19.11 . Although a lot older  I still wear them today , not the same pair obviously . With a good and regular polish you not only preserve the boot , people do notice the shine . The price today is a bit different, like the Levi's I still wear , the first pair I bought 1964 were £4 .19. 11 a bit different today .
