I think the photo has the wrong caption on. It says Lea Ford Road near Stechford. Lea Ford Road joins Shard End and Lea Village at the Bailey Bridge. I'll have to listen to Mr Blue Sky. I think that photo is of the bridge at Cole Hall Lane that joins Shard End - Kits Green what we called the White Bridge.


What makes you think that the Avenue in Mr Blue Sky is Packington Avenue?
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Yes but Shard End Crescent runs off Packington Avenue at both ends. Shard End Community Centre was on this road where he rehearsed a lot with early bands.
