Dawn if you type what you are looking for ie
Spooner St you will find on there your house
With the rear wall of the boys home
I believe you are playing outside your home
From memory I think there is a dog as well
If not on here try Birming Forum  Nechells and Duddeston

If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.

Hi new to this forum .


My father and law was Stan Spencer .his wife was Doreen Causier .


I believe from Devon St .


Frequented The Albion Vaults (Ropers)


I was a B8 transplant but as a callow youth frequented many a pub from the Ward End to Ropers and beyond on matchdays .
.


I live abroad now but filling in the gaps


It was 75 until 1995 .


Pub on the Rock left hand side going to town between the tilt and the Rock .


Cafe on the corner opposite the Gate .


Pub between the gate and the London tavern Ansells house .


The pub that's burnt down opposite Cato St North where the previous occupants of the Monkey house moved too .




And the delicatessent opposite the Rock pub on the corner just up from Shaws electrical and the famous Curry house

Hello im brand new to this forum.  I lived in nechells park road from 1944 until 1964. My name then was Pat Taylor. My gran (and later my mother) had the second hand shop opposite the co-op. It would be good to hear from some of you.

Hello Paddy. I lived at 48 Aston Church Rd, just up from the Prince of Wales. My Mom worked there for quite a few years. Ron Cocking was the gaffer. My Brother and two sister all went to Elliot Street Junior and Senior, however I passed the 11+ and went to Holte Grammar in Whitehead Rd, Aston. Mick and Lil Burke lived opposite us. I remember Granny Granvilles sweet shop and of course Postans Paints. Dad and Mom used to walk with us all to the manure Farm next to the Gas Works on Sundays during the Prince closing hours. Poor financially but loved abundantly and I would not change my upbringing. My Dad was a Blues fan so me and my brother grew up walking to catch the number 8 bus that took us to St Andrews. Great memories, thanks for bringing them back. I live in the USA now although my brother and sisters live in Birmingham so I do get to go back occasionally.
