Fred Lane. Used to man one of his city newstands  himself for many years. But as he got older he was in the shop more. His Wife i think her name was Nell used to run the shop before. I used to get the Eagle & Rover & Hotspur comics from their shop. Happy Days

I remember. Fred Lanes shop just above Monks . I delivered papers for Wisemans in Vincent Parade and my round was half completed at the bottom of...............street opposite Mary Street school. Then I had to pick up two reams of TheBirmingham Mail latest edition, to complete my round and take the rest back to Wiseman's. Thursday's mails were quite thick so it was a weight to carry back up hill all the way. All for ten bob a week!
