Thanks for the map Phil, Gill, I'm in the right place for the garage, we lived not far from Hazeldene. If you came out of our front door, turned right we were two doors down from Ketton grove. Hazeldene was just a bit further on.


 I have worked out the date more accurately when Bill was at the Garage, it could have been 77, as I bought a car in 76 that I sold a year later. Bill did some welding on it and MOT'd it at the time I sold it in 77.


The welfare may have been further up towards the Radleys, it was a long time ago



I went to Alderlea Boys School Shard End, 68 a 71,  I wasn't there half the time...

That is probably why.  I left Birmingham to work abroad and was away for 15 years after that.  I remember Anita Dutton from Ketton Grove and am still in contact with several people from Hazledene.

As far as I can make out from the map, this photo is the site of the old laundry on Church Rd. I don't know if it was demolished and rebuilt, but it looks like an old building that has been modernised to me.

Just to bring things up to date in 2018:  James Travel is now demolished and replaced with a housing development.  Interestingly the house on the Church Rd side still retains a kink which might be a building line that was retained in the JT building from the Laundry.

With regards to the picture of Wacaden depot,it's definitely the one at Woodbridge Road Moseley. I know because I worked there as a lad in the 1950's (before I left school). You drove the horse & cart through the large opening at the front into the yard,at the very back were the stables for the horses. "Happy days"
