David , I have sent you a message with information which may help you. Alberta

Could you confirm that you have received it, thanks.


Alberta


It's possible David might not have received your message, when you sent your ,message did it say that it had been sent? Because if it was sent then it should have been received.

My friendship with my mate Georgie was particularly strong because we had a common interest - Go-carts, he always managed to get great wheels - I was so envious.

Anyone heard of The Heath Street Fire Service? -  I developed a strong friendship with Georgie, a lad a few doors away from where I lived in Heaton St, (his parents were Italian but I thnk he was born in this country) on one occasion he gave me a WW2 Fire Warden's helmet in exchange for a box of Dinky Cars (not sure it was a good move - probably worth quite a bit today) I was delighted with it more so because it had HSFS (or HFS) printed on it, in bold white letters. I believed this to be Heaton Street Fire Service but learned soon after there was no such outfit and was more probably The Heath Street Fire Service.
Now, the nearest Heath St was just off the Dudley Rd near the hospital, if there was a fire station of some kind there, there is no trace now. I lost touch with Georgie when he left the street about 1957, in 1959 my family was re-homed to a flat on the Lyndhurst Estate, Erdington.

Making ends meet 1950s - My mother worked full time nearly all her working life, pausing only for my birth - downside was as an infant I was passed around to whoever would look after me - upside: money for the occasional luxury: for me a 3-wheeler from Centric Cycles on The Flat.

Cycle shops - We were fortunate enough to have 2 cycle dealers on The Flat in the 50's (Woolworth's also sold cycle accessories) my mother bought me a trike from Centric Cycles (Icknield St end), the other shop was Sport and Play (Ford St end). As the bike got older it suffered from a loose chain, the proprietor at Sport and Play adjusted it for me on a number of occasions without charge, even though he must have known the bike hadn't been purchased from his.
