I assume J2s alley was never officially named that, but guess it must be the one here

Roy

Needless Alley ran from Temple Row to New Street and as far as I am aware is still there today.

I had already posted a photo at reply 50 on this thread

But here is a different one.

Here is one for you old Balsall Heath reprobates. Orchard Rd from Belgrave Rd. You can even see the House of Horror in the background Sherbourne Rd School with the School Clinics Dental Department.

This is Regents Row in the Jewellery Quarter off Warstone Lane. The first photo was taken in 1900 and the other 108 years later by myself in 2008.
 
There is hardly any difference at all.

I used to work in Regents Place when i was down the Quarter,we used to walk down Regents Row to get into Warstone Lane. I think it was the old brick work on both sides then , it wasnt rebuilt until Tenby Electrics moved in there.   Rob

I bet you didn't play football up and down there much. It was more suitable for a bowling alley.
