Graham,
How about that then - if it works - after all your hard work in explaining !!!!
Lynn.

Please Graham, let me know if it has turned out the right size. Lynn.

John, As I learn how to do this, it's how to get it just right.

The 1st one I resized to 957 x 719

and the 2nd one to 638 x 479 so as I do this I want to try and get it just right.

A lot more to learn but there is defnitely a big difference in your two pictures side by side.

Thanks for showing me that. Lynn.

Lynne ,always take photos at your cameras highest resolution, and only re-size once, preferably on a copy so you don't destroy the original if you intend to keep it,the more times you re-size the poorer the quality gets.

Now you are beginning to get the hang of things, how about posting some of those other Birmingham photos you have?

Phil,
I haven't forgotten you asking me about the two cottages and will do for you to-night.
Am off down to Worthing to-day to meet up with some relatives, would much rather stay at home!!
I just want to get the proper size of resizing to be correct.

Yes relatives can be such a bind at times, I would much rather be an orphan. I'm not pressuring you about the photos, but one or two of us Birmingham history freaks on here would like to see them. We are always on the lookout for new photos that we have never seen before.

Phil, I don't know about being an orphan but you certainly do make me laugh.
I'm more than happy to share anything that I have in the hope that there may be something new but your coverage is so extensive that I should think it would be pretty hard to find stuff that you don't already have. Lynn.

This card says exactly the same as the 1st one.
Were there ever any Pubs that looked like these two pictures.

A couple of real old photos you have got there, I think they could be very early even as early as the 1870's. The trouble is although they look like country pubs at that time they could be no more than a 15 minute walk from the city centre and still look like that. I don't think there is any possibility of ever identifying them not without further information or someone coming up with a copy of the photo with the name on.

I don't think the second one is a photo of the Bell, here is a photo for comparison.

Studying that first photo I don't think it is as old as it looks, the photo I mean not the house. I'm sure that the roof of the outhouse is made of corrugated steel sheets, and I'm sure that I can see an electricity supply cable going to the front of the house.
