Pam

I hope you don't mind but I turned your photos around the correct way and made the size slightly more manageable. Sometime later I might move some of your posts to the Nechells thread.

I loved the picture of Betholem Row with the kids outside. I was born there in march 1956. Ther were 3 house and mine was number 11. I think it may be me my brother and some of ths williams kids who in the end house by the yard. There were 11 of them as i remeber in a very small house. Cellar living/kitchen room 1bedroom 1st floor and the attic room . Our loo was the last one along and my moms wash house was on the opposite corner of the yard. Every Monday the midden man came and cleaned out the loos through a metal door in the wall in the the street. Good times.

Thank you Phil. Not very good with the pics lol .

Hi lyn. All i can remember is that my Nans house was at the top end of longacre close to the corner with Charles Arthur street. . I know she had a yard out the back and a bit of garden behind which is where one of my pics was taken.

While we are in the area, another couple of cut throughs. Cleve Terrace that ran from Wheeleys Rd to Owen Street and Betholem Row that ran from Bath Row to Lee Bank.



Mike would there be any chance of me having a copy of the pic of Betholem Row. I would love to add it to my collection Pam

Pam

As far as I am concerned you can copy any photo I have posted on here just remember to repeat any acknowledgements that I may give to the photographer or owner if you post them elsewhere. If I don't give any still don't assume that someone doesn't hold the copyright somewhere. it just means none was given when I sourced the photo in the first place.

Another photo of Cleve terrace taken from about halfway along it. In this photo it shows the Queens Hospital at the end of the terrace, later to be renamed the Accident hospital. You can also see the back entrance to what was once King Edwards Grammar School for girls at a time when this area was once known as Edgbaston before it became Lee Bank because it wasn't posh enough to be associated with the former.

Hi pam just went on the jewish synergy for Birmingham and it does mention a jewish graveyard also says the jewish first came in the 1700

BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands: PDF Print E-mail

International Jewish Cemetery Project - England


For Community Information, see Birmingham on JCR-UK.

"The first synagogue of which there is any record was in The Froggery in 1780. But there was a Jewish cemetery in the same neighborhood in 1730." [Jewish Year Book, 2005.] "...since which time three subsequent cemeteries have been consecrated - one in Granville street, near the Canal, another between Bath and Islington rows, in a thoroughfare which has consequently come to be known as Betholom row, and the present cemetery at Witton, which was consecrated on February 14th, 1871." [Jewish Year Book, 1910.]
