The only pub I used on Ladypool Road was the Wrexham, though I did use the Brighton on occasion when the Landlord from the Talbot (my local only 7 miles from my house then) in the early 70's took it over, but I wasn't keen.

I thought all the locals off Ladypool Road knew the George on the corner of Alfred Street as the Wrexham?

Balsall Heath and Ladypool Road, or the "Lane" as it was referred to by locals. One of the best local shopping areas that could be found anywhere. It's tagged as 1980, but it looks more like the 70's to me.
It does look more '70's.

I grew up with Indian next door neighbours.  My mom, and some of our neighbours, got really into the Indian cuisine.  Back then you couldn't just buy all the spices from your local supermarket like you can now, so there were regular trips to Ladypool Road to visit the 'Indian shops' as they were dubbed  :)

Bristol Road South at Northfield at what looks to be early in the 20th century, The white building on the right is the turnpike (toll house) that stood at the junction of what is now Rochester Road from 1601 up to 1923 though probably not the same building all that time.

What a nice little building.

Most of these buildings have gone.  Some of the ones on the left, especially those in the distance are still there as shops, but the ones in the foreground have mostly disappeared.

Lichfield Road in 1921 looking toward Salford Bridge from Aston Hall Road, that back then was called Aston Lane.
