Hi Castella

Sorry I can't come up with a photo for you, photos of back terraces are always much harder to find than those of street frontage properties. I can however pinpoint the location of Adrian Cottages a little better for you.

If you look at the attached map you will see the terrace between Popular Road and Heathfield Rd. I know the row of cottages facing Adrian terrace that were named Hoddesdon Place were accessed from the High Street because I have attached a photo showing that access. So I am assuming that Adrian Cottages were accessed from the High Street also, but sorry no photo. It seems that both terraces of cottages were swallowed up under the car park extension of the supermarket when it was built sometime in the 70's perhaps.

It depends on where you live, if you live in Birmingham you could try the central Library and ask them to do a search for you. I think that they charge for this service now and I think it may take some time.  Mikejee or Astoness would be able to tell you more about that. You could pop into the library and search through every pictorial history book of Kings Heath in the hope that you will find what you are looking for. More than that I'm sorry I can't help.

Hi Castalla
Just found out my grandfather lived there also! At no.13. Do you know which number? His name was Herbert Stallard. Any relation?

I just find it amazing that both our grandfathers lived in the same house!
