    Spider 1 ,I saw Trevor quite recently and he's looking quite fit and he still has a good sense of humour. I also saw that Eric Batham passed away last week, another character.
  5. We frequently use the Apcoa privately run car park by the Moor Market.It is absolutely filthy , with the basement used as a toilet and quite often there is a discarded hypodermic. The smell is overpowering but all they seem bothered about is collecting fees.

    City Grammar School Leopold Street

    I was there from 1951,my first teacher was Miss Foster(Fef).She looked ancient then.The one who scared me to death was Miss Johnson who made me form captain and then blamed me for everything that went wrong in class. She had a wart on her top lip that made her look like a witch.Mr Walker was my last teacher, but I recall Mr McMahon,Mrs Davy,Mr Etchells,Mr Parsons etc. I once had the cane off the head Mr. Davis .My best mate was Ray Brown who once thumped Mr Hodge I believe.

    A criminal ancestor

    My ancestor was also transported to Australia for killing his wife with a sand hammer. He died a poor and lonely man
  9. I lived on the Strad until 1961, then moved to Woodhouse until 1975.Remember Fred and Edna Hobson at the Daggers, and George Woodhouse at the Stag. I was a member of the Central club and played football for the Brunswick.Later I played darts for the Angel ,run by Jim Mcguigan. A long time ago that seems like yesterday.

    Roadworks Handsworth

    Back to previous posts re. Road works at Handsworth, Amey in their wisdom decided to relay the surface on Laverack Street, thus causing all traffic to re route from going down Richmond Road to go down Richmond Park Road and into the chaos being caused by the works still going on (forever) at the Asda .Could the re surfacing not have waited until the other job was done or is that too simple?

    Roadworks Handsworth

    Whoever puts out the filter signs must be an idiot ,most days you have to filter to the outside lane, but one day last week ,the signs told you to filter out ,then when we got to the works they had opened up the inside lane but left the signs as they were. I honestly don't think they have a clue.
  12. I can only remember 3 houses,Zulu Rivelin, Kaffir Sheaf, and Maori Loxley
  13. How long are the roadworks at Asda Handsworth going to take.It is absolute chaos all day with the road down to one lane.There never seems to be anybody working on it apart from one bloke sitting in a JCB.

    Settling an argument! Winstons.

    The worst quality was Bunnys in the entrance to the Norfolk Market hall.When Jailhouse Rock came out me and my mate went to Bunnys and bought a black jean jacket and some black jeans.These added to a pair of black suede shoes made us extremely cool.Worn over a white tee shirt with the obligatory neck chain and we were the bees knees( or so we thought).
