The other photo worked so thankyou so much for your efforts
As I said, only glad to be of assistance and I hope your mother has a nice day.
Harry Gardner used to play the piano at our local the Red Lion so he never had to buy any beer, his son Phillip was a friend of mine and he went to Clifton rd school until he was 11 he then went to Moseley Gramar he lived on the right in Leamington rd coming from Ladypool rd i lived a bit further down on the left. your mum mite know some of my cousins Jean Sheldon,Pat Sheldon,Shiela Hord, Ann Hord, Hazel Reed, then there are some of the boys Graham Webb,Tony Reed,Alan Blackburn,Bobby Walton,Terry Ward.
I will put a couple of photos of Leamington rd some have my friends on.
Hastings shop is to the right in the first photo the shop is in the second one,
The second one is looking towards Fulham rd.
You will have to let us know if your mum knows any of the names.
I shall get on the case. I'll be seeing her tomorrow, so I will ask her then. No doubt she will become a member of this site in her own right anyway!
She loved the photo in the end as well. Its taken pride of place on the wall as you walk in. Thanks Phill
welcome to the forum max and fred...glad you are enjoying this thread
I'll echo Lyns words guys, welcome to the forum it's very refreshing to have some new friends amongst us. Welcome Max and Fred. Sheldonboy.
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left
Thankyou for the welcome, i look forward to adding to the chat.
I wonder if your mum remembers my cousin Graham Webb from Leamington rd he became a champion cyclist he now lives in Belgium, the others are left Johnny Sheldon, Bobby Walton and my self the two little ones were not from our road.
I have resized both photos for you and enlarged them a little so that they are easier viewed.
Thanks for that, the one with the group on it is a very small photo about 2 and a half inches square.
The thing is on this forum there is no limit (within reason) on the size of attachments we can post.
