Hi Sumo


Welcome to the forum, if you type the names of streets you are looking for in the search box at the top right of the page then you will bring up photos and posts about various street that you enter. I know there are several photos of the Kellett Street flats because I posted them. You will also find photos of the streets around Lingard Street.

As I have said just take a look through this thread from start to finish I think you will find plenty of the photos that you have asked about.

Hi Teddy,


Welcome to you, I believe the pub that they built next to the library in place of the shops is now closed and is now a bed & breakfast lodge. Here is a photo of how it looked just as they began demolition in around 1962.

Another view of the shops by the library on Saltley Road, this one taken in 1957 must have been taken from near the top or even from the top of Queens Tower flats.

Revsby Walk just off Vauxhall Road just being finished of with the then Conservative Club at the top right. Revsby Walk was built in the early 60's where the bottom of Great Brook Street met Vauxhall Road, Supposedly to take the place of Great of Great Lister Street shopping centre, something that it never did. The best thing they built on the site was the Ashted Hamlet pub which was just out of sight to the left, thats gone now and I believe it's some sort of a community centre.

Hi Phill , Gt Lister St what a great shopping area this was
,i worked part time and full time when I left school in 1958
at Lowe's the butcher's just below St Mathews Church
There was also a Lowe's the other end near Rupert St
Both closed down to open in Revesby Walk
But as you say it just never happened
It was was a great shopping atmosphere
with a variety of shops that couldn't be recaptured
If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.
