You see I am greedy, I want several. The section of Francis St Nechells, Vincent St Balsall Heath and Larches St Sparkbrook where I lived and I wouldn't mind one of the Tom Thumb public house, Nechells.
There is a terrible one of the Tom Thumb knocking about on the net that I have a copy of and Mikejee almost came up with a copy of my old house in Larches St but it came up short about 4 doors away. Still I never give up hope.

I have to be honest and say that photo is no part of Larches St that I recognise. There again parts of the street were extensively bombed during the war. I certainly don't recognise the pub. What was the name of it, do you know so I can have a look in Kelly's. Do you have any information on the photo.
Perhaps June will recognise it as she was brought up in Larches St. She hasn't been on for about a week. I suppose shes down in Devon again with the grandkids.
phil i dont think its a pub..looks more like a shop to me but i just cant make out the name..anyhow it reads thats its the hockley/celtic football team winning the sunday/monday cup and league in 1949/50..
