Hi Phil.  -  The road that Goodrich St and Lingard St. ran from was Saltley Rd. which started from the Turks Head (Bloomsbury St.) to Saltley Viaduct.Rember Mrs. Fosters [censored] and Pea shop ? and the shop facing the Station Pub which sold cheap veg. and bread,the owner was an ex paratrooper who had part of his head blown away during one of the his parachute raids.I believe his name was Raymond.

Of course you are right great Lister St finished at Oliver St, Blooomsbury St and it was Saltley Rd after there. I get a little carried away with myself at times, it was such a long time ago now. No I'm afraid I don't remember Mrs Fosters as I used to fetch ours from a shop up by the Nelson pub sorry but the name eludes me now.

All this talk of [censored] and Peas has me hankering for a dishful. I'm off down to the Butchers in Ironbridge tomorrow to buy some of their proper old fashioned creations.
  Are there still shops in Brum where you can get those old original style [censored]?

I don't think there is anymore leastwise I don't know of one, not enough profit in them I suppose. I think they still do a good trade around the black country though.

Hi  all  -  I recall to my grandchildren what we used to eat then,and the look of disgust they give when I reel off Tongue,Eyepiece,Beeves Hearts,Pigs Feet,Real Ox Tails, etc.They say we must have been really poor not to be able to afford Pizza's,Beefburgers and Kebabs.To cap it all I tell them I did'n't have a hot meal for 3 years after the Germans had bombed the local chippie,but we never complained,we waited for them to come along and let rip.

Burns Night has just passed, Haggis is on the supermarket shelves this week. I don't think there's that much difference between them and [censored], being mostly offal.

Even though poor whilst being brought up with my mother, I was still very fussy about what I would eat and very often ate just toast made at the open fire (coke fires were best) while the rest of the family were tucking in to some of the delicacy's you mention.
 
Even today I wouldn't eat a McDonald's meal or a Pizza, though I enjoy a curry otherwise I'm just a roast beef and 2 veg man. From what I see at my children & grandchildrens houses I think the traditional Sunday dinner is a thing of the past.

Hi Steve,

Have had haggis a couple of times and plenty of [censored] as a child and frankly I prefer a good [censored] (NEVER say that in US!), so I hope that you pick up some good ones. 

Nobody knows how to make them here - they do something a bit, similar ''albondigas'', which means it's originally an Arabic dish - I generally like Arab food but the Spanish and Dominicans have had 500 years to mess about with it, so it's generally about half the size and tends to be greasier, like a 'rissole or meatball'.

Enjoy them, I envy you a good [censored] or 3!

Trapio, We have benefited in this country in my view, from all the immigrants bringing their cuisine and opening Restaurants and takeaways.
 I wonder if you'd make a success with an English Restaurant in your neck of the woods. Phil might be more inclined to visit then. ;)

Hi all, I have to agree with Steve; The 'Ruby Murray's' are part and parcel of 'Brummie' life.....and, I love them. There are many things that others have brought to us, and for that we should be grateful.
