Hi MAX,
Harry Gardner used to play the piano at our local the Red Lion so he never had to buy any beer, his son Phillip was a friend of mine and he went to Clifton rd school until he was 11 he then went to Moseley Gramar he lived on the right in Leamington rd coming from Ladypool rd i lived a bit further down on the left. your mum mite know some of my cousins Jean Sheldon,Pat Sheldon,Shiela Hord, Ann Hord, Hazel Reed, then there are some of the boys Graham Webb,Tony Reed,Alan Blackburn,Bobby Walton,Terry Ward.

I will put a couple of photos of Leamington rd some have my friends on.

I shall get on the case. I'll be seeing her tomorrow, so I will ask her then. No doubt she will become a member of this site in her own right anyway!

Phil,
Thanks for that, the one with the group on it is a very small photo about 2 and a half inches square.

The thing is on this forum there is no limit (within reason) on the size of attachments we can post.
