request help with a search
« on: August 05, 2019, 01:53:39 PM »
Hi to all,


I would like to know if anyone could point me to a map of Birmingham circa 1960.. I am particularly after the section known as Birmingham 4. Ideally it would cover the bottom end of Steelhouse Lane including Loveday Street to the lower end of Woodcock street.


The area I would like to include is Woodcock Street swimming Pool, The Gaiety Theatre, Gem street, Children's Hospital


I have put 1960, but any map that needs to be pre-demolishing of Gem Street.


Any Help would be appreciated, I was of course born in Loveday Street and we lived in Gem Street


thanks

Phil

This is just one of the many maps you will find there, because of the size limitations on this site it is not possible to post large copies showing the detailed area you want to cover this is why I suggest you use the map site.

Hi tca,
My school used to use Woodcock Street Baths for Galas, inter-school house ones mostly, though I used the baths myself with friends at other times.
I was at this school 1948-53.
