Just a bit off topic but one of our part time coach drivers used to boast of racing along Edrington high street on a Saturday whilst driving his ambulance (full time job) we always suspected he was not all there especially when he told us that he was not on an emergency call out.

Hi all
can anyone place whereabout on Washwood Heath road this photo was taken?
as Washwood Heath road starts at the junction of the Saltley Gate and goes on to Bromford Lane/Stechford lane junction
Where there is a will there is a way

According to the directory Freeman Hardy & Willis were at 26/28 Washwood Heath Rd that would put the shop somewhat before Arley rd just inside Washwood Heath Rd, but it looks like nothing I remember. It's not even uphill, I know the hill was only slight but it was obvious.
