Hi Lynn

I take it you have seen the photos that I posted in the Gaiety thread on all the All Things Birmingham thread. You will also see Mike's answer to your query about Gem St.

Morning Phil, what you doing up so early.
I used to go to the Gaiety every time they changed the film, as I did to most of the cinemas.

I'm on the school run for the next couple of weeks, taking the grandkids and great grandkids to school in the mornings and picking them up in the afternoons. Its a different world now to when you and I walked backward and forward to school on our own at five years of age.

Hi Phil,

Have just picked up your Thread on Gaiety. Top 4 Photos I have not seen before - Fantastic and thanks. Mike's explanation of Gem Street also just what I wanted, couldn't ask for more.

Lynn.

I only ever walked backward to school a few times, I did most of my walking backward when I started going down the pub, or more precisely on the way home.

What did I tell you about Mike, he is brilliant when it comes to sorting out map details. I'm sorting out a folder of photos of the Holders pubs mentioned by you, but I haven't got the Royal Oak Langley on my collection or the Crown & Cushion West Bromwich. I will post the ones I have on the All Things Birmingham thread later.

Phil,

The Two Pubs that you mentioned above I got from www.breweryhistory.com/Defunct/BreweryIndex.htm

When you post on All things Birmingham later - I could post on some scans if you tell me how to.

Lynn.

I don't doubt that the two pubs you mention were at one time Holders pubs, it's just that my collection of photos and books concentrates mainly on Birmingham. If I were to start adding outlaying districts I'm afraid it would become unmanageable.

To see how to download scans & photos go to the Welcome thread where you will see "A little help with uploading files" just follow the instructions therein, its quite simple really.

You might consider introducing yourself to the rest of the crowd while in the welcome thread, you'll fond them pretty civilised and well behaved. Well most of the time anyway.

Has anyone seen the new National Express Bus livery.
It's a deep red. I hope they are changing the whole fleet, Very smart.

With the risk of looking like a bus spotter I may get a picture of one.

Thanks Mike, I really like this livery, much better than the present red and white.

Transport in Birmingham

I would agree with that, though it does make them look a bit like London buses
