I know Communication Row well as I have used it several times to avoid traffic congestion years back, I remember it as a very narrow street.

Phil you turned up trumps with one of them that leaves two I haven't seen , first Checkers Walk leading off Granville St , I don't know if this qualifies as one but a little side road leading to Bath Row by the name of Communication Row it ran off the top of Holiday St(William Street end) and around to Bath Row there were about a dozen houses and a recreation ground for the kids there

What year was that then Judith ?
Would have been the late '80's until about '90.

48p for a pint of mild - and you got it in the big dimply glasses.  Not sure what the price for lager was.

i was a pupil at ward end hall school from 1958 to 1962. I Remember in 1960 a pupil called Gary porter was killed by lightning whilst playing cricket at bromford bridge racecourse during the school learning period at 11am in the morning held by a teacher who later resigned as he sent him back to collect the wickets as they all ran for cover when a thunderstorm broke out overhead. We all heard thunder at the school as it was a showery morning. The headmaster a mr t. H. Haines called everybody to the main assembly room hall on the ground floor where we were told , some of the girls were in tears . On the day of the funeral we all had to assemble outside the school in lines as a mark of respect as the funeral cars passed by.see British newspaper archives Birmingham post dated 15 th July 1960, boy saw friend die in storm.

Hi again Magpie,


In this slightly clearer print of the photo that Roy has posted of the Coronation celebrations in Tillingham Street for King George VI in 1937 as per my previous post you will see the coal yard entrance I mention opposite the end of the street on Turner Street. The number would be 44 Turner Street, but there is no coal yard registered there in 1937. As I said a rough date for your grandfather would be a help.

Hi Magpie


If you type the names of the street into the searchbox at the top right of the page you will bring up posts and photos of both streets, I know they are there somewhere because I posted them. Also have you a year for your granddads coal yard because I lived around the corner in Larches Street and the only one I can remember in Turner Street was opposite the end of Tillingham Street.
