Oh yes Joe our conkers came from Chelmsley Wood. A fantastic wood until it was infested with people and their houses.

I remember Bainse's shops, but didn't know the bakery. i never knew farthings, in fact until I left school I didn't know much about money at all. Then I started work with the big money. 4.10/- per week then I had to give my mom half of that plus my bus fair. So I wasn't left with a lot.
