thanks you guys for the effort. It was the photo you referred to for Our kid.

I don’t remember the buildings on the right which mask Kensington Gardens because when I was taken shopping to the bottom of the hill they had been bombed and they were ultimately demolished presumably for safety.
Just below the bombed site was a green grocer called Allen’s I think and a cobbler called Wright’s . He had a goitre . Then there was I think the laundry Horace the barbers and a chipper ( not as good as pyatts(?) opposite the Wallace(?)
Then I think there was monks who had an abbatoire in a wide entry and used to chop the pigs carcasses down the middle by hanging them minus the head on either side of the doorway.

Where did we go wrong and get in the mess we’re in now.

If you type Balsall Heath Rd into the search box at the top right of the page it will probably bring up photos of some of the shops you mention.
