Tramp its true, I was born at the Sorrento hospital, ( I dont remember much, I was very young then,)  since then its been pulled down and a posh old peoples home built on the land,,........ cradle to the grave sort of thing ..... :D. and funny thing is I was looked after by nurses in Mosley Hall daycare centre,  I remember I used to have my afternoon sleep in the class wing on the left side of the building,( but the mists of time cloud my mind )...J2

John was born before me and so remembers the First War, while I had to wait for the Second War to be born as dad was wounded in that and I'm the product of his 2 weeks sick leave.  O0

Have you seen this one before, its an early photo c1880 of Bullock & Harper Builders and their premises stood on Welsh's Hill and that was prior to Sailsbury Rd being cut. Its was  the on Alcester Rd going towards Kings Heath roughly from the corner of Sailsbury Rd and the post office.

Hi everyone, just to let you all know I have not had as much time as I would like to 'chat'  I am constantly tied up with a poorly mum. I do look in all the time to see what's going on and keep up with all the postings. Have not deserted you, just very busy...busy. I love the pics that Phill keeps posting. This Forum keeps me sane! Will eventually have some free time but not enough yet to stay online. Best wishes. Bookworm

Hi bookworm

Sorry to hear about your poorly mom and hope she gets better soon, thanks for your kind comments and it is members like you that makes the effort worthwhile. I think in these trying times we all need a link with the good times that we remember to keep us sane.

Hi Bookworm,

I hope that your mother recovers as soon as possible and that she's then able to be more independent as most older folk enjoy being able to do as much as possible for themselves. O0
