Getting back to our walk, the next road on our right as we walk down Worcester St was Station St. Another much changed street over the years.

I got a little in front of myself there our next streeet off to the left should have Great Queen Street that later when enclosed by New Street Station became Queens Drive, It is now remembered by the little piece of road that is used for dropping off and picking up passengers at New Street Station.

As we continue our walk down Worcester St, hopping over Station Street as we go as we have already taken a glance down there we now arrive at the junction of Edgbaston St and Smallbrook St. Taking a look to the left we see Edgbaston St.

Hi Phil et al

Cracking Thread. Love it. This is just a little pic to show I can now do it! Had many probs with posting photos, but it turned out to be my browser and not my kit, so all OK now. I hope to be popping stuff on far more frequently now that I've found you...

Cheers everyone..

And some reminders of the area around there, including Dudley Street...and Alex's Pie Stand where I spent many an hour with the Rockin Modernaires after gigs at the Swan....
