Hi Everyone
Liked all the photos.  Doing my moms family tree at indepth at mo.  She lived in Devon Street and went Bloomsbury Street school.  Just text her going to show her the photos see if she remembers any of them.  I had a nan you lived in Inkerman Street.

Cheers x




Hi AnnRNR,


My Nan went to Bloomsbury school, she left in 1936 aged 14, her name was Olive Parry. Might your mom know her?

Apologies Chaps :-[ :-[
 
 I used to go to Clarkes Cables for cables for my pushbike, and later for my motorbikes. You took your broken cable along with the nipple, and the chap there would knock one up in a few minutes. Also cheaper then the bike shops.
me too nothing was too much for them. and a better job than shops did

Phil, thank you for the info on The Nechells Picture Palace. looks like it was Nechells first and only picture house maybe it was an old time theater before then is there any street map or plan with it on that you know of?. as we are on about picture house in Nechells this photo is inside old Nehells Hall about to show films for the kids I think its taken early 1950's a little bit before I got the chance to get around on my own (hey Phil is that you getting a ticking off the minister for opening emergency exit doors?)
 
we went there to see films. roy fox played the piano. and also i was a lifeboy there.

Hi all
 
can anyone remember a large detach house that was on the grounds between Cattells grove and St Clements rd that was facing Nechells park rd, before the petrol sation was built on there, as it seems a building of important.  I was told as a kid it was for nuns?
 
pudding

The only large house I can see in that area on the early maps is Prospect Place which was on the edge of Nechells Park which later became the Chemical Works. Would this be the place?

Dek
 
About the Bundy clock, if we are to believe the bus stop then the clock would have to be on the left side of the road facing away from Cuckoo Bridge and toward Nechells Park Rd, because only then would it be "To City".
 
Phil
it stopped unloaded/loaded turned left and left then went to town. the clock was across from the shop in c/road

Never having used the 43 bus as far as Cuckoo Road after turning left at the bottom of Nechells Park Road to reach the Bundy Clock how did it then get back on to Nechells Park Road for the return journey? I found a much later photo of the Bundy Clock across the road from the shops, I think it must date from the late 70's.
