 Topic: Nechells, Vauxhall, Duddeston & Saltley, 40's, 50's & 60's. see Page 275 for a couple of photos of Weston Street.I was born and lived at 16 Weston Street until I was 8 years old. It was one of the 3 story houses in the first photo. Other family names I remember are the O'Grady's, the Bolger's, the Crotty's and the Will's, we all shared a communal yard which you can see the large gates in this picture. Opposite was some sort of wood yard or factory. I have pictures of us as children sitting in front of this, we used to play hopskotch here and draw on the walls with the tar from the road when it softened in the sun, using a lollipop stick.
