Val
i would have been very interested in your slides if the other members had not contacted you. They, however would probably be better positioned to pick them up , as i live in Reading.
I look forward to seeing them on the forum.

Right getting back on thread, Elaine I thought there were photos of St Anne's school already on this thread but just in case not,  here are two of the school and one of the Vicarage.

Hi Guys:
I live in upstate NY close to Niagra Falls, if you want to pop by there's always a cuppa going.  Alternatively, I'll be happy to mail them.

Hi  Mikejee,
I'll mail  them to you.  I don't need the postage, thank you anyway.  I'd just like give them to someone who could use them.
I note that I had said that they were early 60's, however, they are actually early 70's.  I was home on vacation, loved the mosaics, and took shots of the entire wall. Also  St. Martin's,  Nelson's statute  and various shots of Nechells. There's about 25 in all.
I'm not sure how to get them to you.

Phil, The picture of the children from St Anne's School, are shown leaving the gas works recreation rooms, My father worked in the retort house at Saltley Gas Works, and every year, us children of the workers, were invited to a christmas party, in those rooms, and in the summer months, we were taken on an outing, that was in the late 1940s  early 1950s, wonderful memories were brought back looking at that picture, thanks Phil.
