Hi Spooky
 
Welcome to our little family, I used to have some relations (well sort of relations) who lived in Havelock Rd my step fathers sister moved there with her husband when she got married. Her name was Jenny sorry I didn't know her married name or her husbands name.
 
Here are the only two photos of Havelock Rd that I have.

The house on the right 74 Havelock Rd was ours 1979 to 2018

Hello all and thank you for an amazing few hours scrolling through the photos and memories of Alum Rock, Saltley, Nechells.  I spent a lot of my early years with my grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Gething, in Havelock Road (117 to be exact) and have very fond memories of Mrs. Brookes' sweet shop where she would come through from her back living room into the small shop and weigh the sweets out of the glass jars onto the old fashioned scales with the weights.  Happy days!
 
My grandparents house was opposite Mr. & Mrs. Perks Barbers Shop.  Does anyone have any knowledge of this end of Havelock Road?  I can even remember a lot of the neighbours although I am going back over 50 years!!!  Mrs Dunn lived at 115, Mrs. Hindley lived at 113, a girl called Geraldine lived at 111 and Mrs. Biers lived at 109 next to the gulley leading to the backgardens. 
 
Originally my grandparents lived in the back-to-back houses through a gulley from Wright Road.  Does anyone remember a family called Pearcewright (my gran's family)?  I cannot find them on any of the census papers but I have other information that definately says they lived in Nechells/Duddeston area.  The Bourne part of my family also came from there but they too are missing from any census.
 
Look forward to any of your memories and photos if there are any.

Hello everyone -


I'm trying to locate a Naseby School photograph 1982-83
If anyone has a good copy please let me know.


Incidentally there is a wonderful 1968 Naseby School photograph on Facebook or
Alum-Rock-Community-Forum


I couldn't upload as it was more than 80kb size   . I'll try to attach a part photo

Ian,
I attended Mathew Bolton Tech it must be the new one that you work at. The original one as been demolished I had to move form the original one to the new I think it was in Suffolk St.


No Fred, I was on part-time day-release from Dunlop at the old Tech from 1958 - 1960. Afterwards, I went to Gosta Green CAT (now Aston Uni)

Thanks MMH for the lovely recollections and photo of your area.


Living at Castle Bromwich, I regularly passed though Saltley on the Midland Red to Birmingham or on my bike to and from Matthew Boulton Tech. Also, my mother worked at the Metropolitan Cammell and had many friends in the area.    O0
