PEG.in my wife's school days she was chosen to go to the T V Studios by Aston Cross and interview her for a project at school.
Knew it well Ed, commuted daily from Erdington to Harry Lucas School Hockley, changed buses at Aston Cross - got off the 64 and on the Inner Circle 8. Did the studio become BRMB?
Peg.
P.S. What was your wife's school?

The notorious Mr Smith - I felt his cane in connection with an incident where a girl got her specs broken by a pebble (it was a bum rap guv, I was dun up like a kipper).
Other teachers I remember Mrs Jones (music and arithmetric), Mr Williams (can't recall his subject) and the last one to teach me: Mr Eggerton, he must have been quite lonely - this was when I was in the annex at Friends Hall in my last year (1959-60) he was the only teacher, had to be an all-rounder. His profound wisdom has stayed with me (when planning for one day trip to Rhyl, could have been Llandudn): Bring yourself a pakamac and a magazine. Words of Wisdom Lloyd, words of widom (The Shining).

Workingmen's Cafe, corner junction Farm St and Bridge St West (1960-65). When at Harry Lucas School one of of my favourite alternative lunchtime destinations if salad was on the menu at school.

P.S. What delicacy did I usually opt for? Tough choice - usually bacon or egg sandwich, but if I was flush Bacon and egg  sandwich - do you know wot?: Heading for the kitchen!
