It shows how bad my memories getting, even though I never used the Monkey House I must have been up and down Cato Street thousands of times but I always remember the pub being on the other corner. So it's a good job you came up with that photo because I would have gone to my grave thinking that.

Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)Phil it is one of the reasons why I got the pic of the monkey house from the Eric hill of the nechells history society because I myself did not have it and I knew you haven't in your collection.Well here is another one for you The Prince of Wales which was on the corner of Mount st and Aston church rd.

Hi Pudding

Didn't you live in Brighton Terrace at one time?

Hi Phil,sorry mate I didn't live up the "Bums Puzzle" I lived at the back of the Manor arm pub which was a little bit further down Duddeston mill road.as for the title Brighton Place it is the wrong name,it is Vauxhall terrace.

I knew that I was only pulling you leg, in fact I pointed out what you say on the BF some time back. Though Brighton Terrace was at the side of the chippy at number 66 as I remember reading you said you lived at the rear of the chippy. It's the photo that has been named wrong as usual hasn't it?

Is there only one St vincents church, as i seem to have a very small picture marked just St vincents church, but it looks a bit palin for an RC church

That would have been the St Vincents Church that was attached to the school I attended in Vauxhall Grove I think it must have replaced the original school that stood between Ashted Row and Great brook St. From the maps it doesn't seem that a lot of it was viewable from either road, this might explain why photos are in short supply.

There is a new St Vincents Church on Nechells Parkway, what would have been Ashted Row in my day. Not a stones throw from the original school. and with the entrance not another stones throw from where I used to live on what was Francis Street. I understand that the school in Vauxhall Grove opened in 1930 so I would imagine thats when the other church closed.

Hi Phil,Mike,and all.

I have been studding the street plan/map that has been posted on showing the whereabout of the old St Vincent's Church was on Ashted row
I came to realise there was another entrance in Great brook street.I have also had a look on other forums for a pic of the said streets I think the entrance to the school/church is a photo under the title of the Parliament house pub as there is an ornamental brickwork over the entrance two doors away down from the pub.also there is a pic I have seen of Great brook street showing children playing outside an wide entrance I wonder if this may be the one in Great brook street?

Yes I think that the Ashted Row entrance to the school is on this photo just a few doors down from the Parliament House public house. If the second photo is the one you are referring to, I think it's just an opened up back court.
