denise,

I've just seen Phil's comment about Coldbath Farm.  It was owned by Jack Morris a butcher and farmer - Dorothy his wife probably filled the pot you have.  Jack also had a butcher's shop on Ladypool Road Sparkbrook which is how I came to know him....   He was a kindly man with a daughter and he'd have loved a son which is one of the reasons why he took me out to his farm a few times.....it was great - two eggs and 3 rashers of home cured bacon!....plus home made black pudding and fried-bread O0

I should look after that pot if I were you, I'm not saying it has any great value but it must be a rarity. Jack Morris didn't have that big a farm nor was his shop. So I wouldn't think he had that many made.

I do remember I made the trip every Saturday for years after we moved to Solihull to his shop to buy meat. I wouldn't have it from anywhere else. The Farm closed in sometime in the 60's I think. Sold for development and the Golf Course.

Can someone tell me where Coldbath Farm was.  I lived on Coldbath Road during the 50s and 60s.

Mary 8790,

The front entrance, the farmhouse, was between the steamroller depot/garage and the prefabs just before Swanshurst Park.

Some more post cards for you, I'm afraid the quality is not too great.
By the way did you have a key to the private park (Chantry Park) when you lived in Moseley.
