Linwaisee you should now have received a PM [Personal Message] via The Birmingham Forum messaging system. Always best not to give too much detail on an open site.

Dear Kathy
My grandmother moved into No. 8 about 1910 and my father was born there in February 1918 and lived there until he married my mother in 1938 (October 29). He moved into No. 12 sometime between 1940 and 1943. My parents were living in Lea Road when my elder brother, John was born and I was born in 1943 in No. 12 Blundell Road.My father's name was Desmond Lyndon (Des or Les  to his friends). As you were born in 1923, you say, the boy at No. 8 would have been my father but he was 5 years older than you not younger. He was an only child and spoiled by his mother. It is quite likely that he would have a hornby train set. He had just about everything he wanted. The widow over the road I couldn't remember was Mrs. Easom

Hello Linwaise,

Reading this thread about Blundell Road has bought back so many memories. I used to live at 3 Lea Road and had many friends in Mountford Street and Percy Road, so Blundell Road was a road we used regularly. Some of the names you mentioned are familiar to me but I have no actual recollections of who they actually are.
