Hi Again JW

Where was it your relative moved from? I can't help you out with a street view but I have got the three pubs named by John2000, he always thinks of the important thing first.

I have also got one of Pinnicks on the Balsall Heath Rd corner of Longmore st. If I come accross any more I will post them.

Phil

Hi Janey,
The names sound familiar,did they hang around together,I think my brother Barrie had a crush on Bernie,
There used to be two sets of girls around that time Bernie and Betty and Jane and another girl can't remember her name though,
