Thank you again, Phil, reading those adverts makes the mind bogle. I rather fancy the idea of being waited upon by respectable and obliging Attendants.

Here's one I don't think we have done before, Albert Walk which runs from Harborne Park Road to Albert Road Harborne just before the High Street, between 1 & 2 on the map. There used to be a Antique shop on the Harborne Park Rd corner of it that my wife would never let me drive past without stopping for a look, thankfully she never saw anything she really fancied.

I know that passage well.  Had friends who used to live in the flats on War Lane and there was a Chinese takeaway by the Harborne Park Road end of the alley that was used on a regular basis when the one friend was pregnant - a persistant craving for lamb curry!

Do you remember the antique shop at the opposite end corner across the road fro the Kings Arms? My wife loved nosing around in there, it's a take away now I think.

Sorry, I don't remember it.  What year are we talking?  Maybe it'd gone by the time I was regularly there.

It would have been the early to mid 70's I suppose.

Suffolk Place which although much different today still runs from John Bright Street to Suffolk Street (Queensway). The first photo is from John Bright St to Suffolk St, the second Suffolk St to John Bright St.

I walk past that on my way to the bus after work on a regular basis.  As you say, much changed!

This is Union Row that runs off Grove Lane Handsworth, the church was the local congregational church that I believe has now been replaced by a Sikh Temple. Union Row runs through from Grove Lane to Stafford Rd
