Well with that said lets get back on track, else I could be here all day arguing my opinion. No need to apologise for anything! Back in the City Centre.


Broad Street with Easy Row 1962

I have an old photo of Birmingham. This was taken on the corner of Moor Street and High Street in 1932. The store Oswald Bailey can be clearly seen. Can you also see the policeman dressed in a white outfit and helmet

Is he in white as he's directing traffic & needing to be more visible?

Dudley Street 1959





This is Birmingham City Centre, as I don't see suburbs such as Quinton, Shard End, Great Barr Solihull being part of Streets of the City, or am I missing what this thread is all about. Also while we are on the subject Solihull now comes under Birmingham so are we now going to include the street of Solihull into the thread of the City Centre.
What you get time and time again on this forum is KEEP ON TOPIC so I am.

Anyway away from policemen. Kent Street, Bromsgrove Street Baths. I'm sure I have been in these baths in the past, not at these prices though.
