Hi

Does anyone remember or have any pictures of C. A. Griffith Tailors and Outfitters at 168/188 Bolton Road, Small Heath?

Hello Griff,

Welcome to the best forum in town.   As Denise and Bernie have said, Phil is your best bet by far for a photo of your dad's shop.  It's good to see you settling in and getting around BF.  Get stuck in and enjoy it  O0

Hi Griff

Welcome to the Forum, we are glad to have you here. I'm sorry but I have been asked before for photos of Bolton Rd. I don't have a single one, I know I used to have some and I spent ages looking for them but I must have misfiled them because I am still looking. If I come across them I will post them as soon as I do.

Hi Griff

I've had a good look around and photos of Bolton Rd seem to be like the proverbial rocking horse [censored]. All I can come up with at the moment are these two and I'm afraid they are not up to much.

I will keep looking and if I come up with any more I will post them at a later date.
