Where is This?
« on: December 07, 2010, 09:47:05 PM »
I tried this about a year or so back on this forum, it didn't take off then. If at first you don't succeeed........
 
The idea is I post an old photo and you try to give me a location as near as possible. So I'll start you off easy. By the way they will all be in Birmingham

No not Cannon Hill Park, perhaps this photo taken a mere 120 years ago might help.

It is Hagley Rd, Bearwood, if you can tell me exactly where you get the coconut. The second photo is a dead giveaway.
