The Shop is the old tattooist shop that was at the junction of Camp Hill and Coventry Rd. Some year later the flyover would have been over the photographers head.

That is quite correct in each detail. Here are another couple of images, one pre flyover and one after.

Phil,
     There is something not quiet clear with the photo )37.89 posted by Baz !!!
If your assumption is correct;that it is prior fly over,then the background to the photo should have been the houses on the corner of Bedford rd and not Dowding and Mills.
These houses and the top of Bordsley station can be seen clearly in your photo (50.66 kB
Dowding and Mills was 100 yards further up the hill towards Bradford st. O0

* BORDESLEY ISLAND.jpg                               (37.89 kB, 559x399 - viewed 67 times.)
 
looking at the road on the left by the bus its says M1 and the one above says coventry so its a far chance its the start of the cov road  thats what it looks like to me
each day is a blessing and I bless each day when it comes

Roy,
      There is no doubt,it is the begining of the Coventry Rd,at the bottom of Camp Hill.
What is in question is the existence of the Downing and mills factory,in that position at that time.If you look towards Camp Hill you will notice the cars parked out side the actual position of Dowding and mills. O0
