Yes but you appear to be well watered and matured so gracefully

A unique piece of Birmingham History. A Calthorpe Car which used to be made on Bordesley Green Birmingham. Follow this link for a little of the history of this car.

Actually SB it is Wikipedia.

Although the Calthorpe Car page appears to be all true and correct in this case, Wikipedia is not known for it's accuracy.

It only tells you what someone else wrote and therefore wants you to know so it isn't always correct or sometimes even remotely factual.
You can edit most of the pages yourself, without any form of Log-on and make them read how you want them to read. Go and try it.

What I'm getting at is don't believe anything you read there without checking it at some other places as well. But be careful about checking the facts at similar looking sites because there are hundreds of advertising only sites that copy entire pages from Wikipedia and put them on their own sites, as if it were their own work, because advertisers insist on some proper page content, even if it is stolen or untrue.
I know this for a fact, if I google some text from a page I wrote it appears in loads of different parasite websites, none of which are related to Wikipedia.

VM

Although what you say is quite true, I usually find Wikipedia quite good on a factual commonplace information basis. But a lot of posts in the political, sport & pop fields can be more wishful thinking and personal opinion. Or the result of being told by another person that its factual, than what is actual fact.

One conclusion I have made during these 63 years that I have spent on this planet and that is nothing is ever clear even if it appears transparent

If any members are having trouble, there is probably a Voltman Translation CD available. Unfortunately it will have been written by him. So you will need The Voltman Translation, Translation CD, which may help.

Nice photo of the first trolley bus to climb the hill at Nechells Park Rd in 1922 from the terminus in Cuckoo Rd. It was I believe the inauguration of the No 7 Nechells service with I think ran to Old Square.

If I am wrong in any of these details, then please forgive me, as I have more interest in the photo than the content. If you want to correct anything I say in this section of the forum then please feel free to do so as you would be doing me a favour.

What an odd concept was the Trolley Bus.
They certainly couldn't have been thought up for envoironmental reasons at the time but that is why they now live on around the world.
Wouldn't work here these days due to double parking and other selfish driver practices.
