Just found the beautiful pictures of the Bull Ring and surrounds..Now they
are how I remember it, maybe a few more barrows, with one chap selling
Bra,s and pants, all strung up like flags, then just past him the farm eggs and
butter,cheese and some times live chooks which they rung the neck while one waited, I did,nt mind you I was to squirmy..Do you remember the Watercress
lady with her basket, course some of what I recall could be even earlier than
thepictures but they are great memories.

Hi Bannion your memory serves you well ,yes are right about the trip down Trittiford road to the park and wet was all we got when we went to the dingles  I went home a few times with soaking socks and shoesI I visit Brum a few times  to syay with my cousin who live in Sheldon and I had this urge to revisit the Trittiford road school  it s not changed much either    I also visited Swanshurst park   I stood by the lake on the opposite side looking towards the boat house and all I saw was a delapitated old shell  I believe it has been pulled down now  I should never have gone back its a crying shame to see things go for ever
Oh memories are coming back chatting to you thanks Bannion
