|Mainly For Brummies But All Are Welcome To Join In The Birmingham Fun & Chat|
This is the place where Brummies come to chat about Birmingham old and new along with anything else that interests us. We have Quizzes, Pizzas, Local History, News, Politics, Wedding Cake, Plum Pudding, Champagne, Easter Eggs and, above all, Respect for our fellow members.
It has been suggested that we start a thread on how quickly parts of Birmingham have gone from being rural villages to urban centres in less than a century. As I have an extensive collection of old photos I have been having a look through them and I have come up with these views of the Quinton area to start with. With each photo I am posting a photo of the same area today so you will be able to locate them.
1 & 2 Are of the Hawthornes or what we now know as Hagley Rd West about a hundred years apart
3 & 4 Are the junction of Quinton Lane and Hagley Rd West where the Holly Bush now stands 70 years apart
5 & 6 Are Stoney Lane a little further op Hagley Rd West between 70 and 100 years ago.
Make Love, Not War
