Don't forget to click the upload button after selecting your file.
This often catches me out.

Great photos, I especially like the aerial one. It shows my street on the top left corner and I would have still been living in Francis St at the time, but I think it's a little earlier than 1960 as stated.

I also don't think that the steam train is parked in front of the coliseum / Carlton theatre on saltley road as the photo I have shows what bit that can be seen quite differently. It would be interesting to find out just where it is because it does look like a cinema or theatre.

Phil if you zoom in to the two pictures you can see identical stone work of the Carlton theatre also the lamp fixing above the tram engine and I think the sign board above the tram car says Carlton?

Yes pudding you are right, it's just that the tram is hiding the double entrance doorway and the first floor windows looks lower because of the tram.

Phil is hard to beat on the Photo front Pam. He hasn't got many though he is a good mate of Doctor Who When anyone asks for a picture he just pops back in time to take one. That's what friends do for you. SB


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left.

I've found an address on the E rolls for a rellie at 3 Ashted Villas, Heneage St. It looks as if its only a few doors down from the Grapes pub. Has anyone got a pic of this pub please Thanks.
Lynne.

Though I only lived a few minutes walk away from this pub until I was 16, I have no memory of it at all. I can only think it was demolished before I became interested in pubs. Strange though because it was the nearest pub to our house and my parents never used it.

Thanks Phil, that was quick. It was an uncle that lived there and the E Rolls were 1945, he died in 1950, so dont know how long after the pub went. We lived next door to a pub in Hospital St. but my dad never went in there, he preferred Summer Lane.
