Warner Street

The Camp Service Station at the junction of Warner Street and Camp Hill, later at the off end of the flyover, as can be seen here.

Well done Potomac. I spent most of the time looking at the other end of Digbeth via the clue given.
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

well done alan O0  looks like that corner has gone now taken up by a new bit of road...just doing a little street view and i had not realised that little ann st was still there...think that was the scene of an awful fire back in the 1800s

Thank you  all.  Lyn found a street that she thought might have disappeared: I was amazed how much the Camp Hill area has been re-developed.  There appears to be lots of bushes and small trees and a general openness to the once densely built up area.


A comment regarding the spell checker here.  It is getting late, I rise early so had to correct two spelling mistakes in the short post!   Disappeared was the first mistake, the spell checker suggested 'sandpaper'  ;) .  The second faux pas was densely that suggestion was something equally outlandish.  ;D
best wishes,  Alan

That snow came down in the late 40s early 50s so its around about 70 years old, how much longer do you want to wait?  ;D Sorry not Bournville
