Don't know if you resident brummies know this, but the Mail website has got a brilliant nostalgic photos section, covering most of Brum, here's a few sample pics.
ST. CLEMENTS ROAD, NECHELLS. ST. MATHEWS CHURCH AND VICARAGE, NECHELLS. BARTON ARMS AND HIPPODROME.

Hi John

Do you remember Stafford St when it was more like this and when the Corner Café was still there before the Shah Jahan and the trams were still running?

I doubt if John had started work when the trams stopped running, and previous to that probably like myself he walked everywhere because it was all he could afford. The only time we used trams, buses or trains were on days out to the Lickeys or Sutton Park.

That was expensive for a bike, you could buy a house for that much back then.
