Rob, I remember this view well as we lived on Walsgrave road.Of particular interest are two of the parked cars. On the left you can just see the front wheel of a Lagonda which belonged to the late Dorothy Cramp whose father ran Powells furniture shop visible on the right. Also just visible in the back ground is the rear end of an Aston Martin with wire wheels. This belonged to Malcolm Cramp, Dorothys husband. He still has this car today.

I'm so glad it brought back memories for you. I was only a toddler when this was taken, so my only memories would be of being dragged around here on boring shopping trips - unless there was a toy shop involved!

I remember it well, I lived in the road just beyond the bus stops, there was a co open shop on the corner and a Pdsa surgery on the other corner, a great place to shop, there was a Woolworths down on the left.

From memory, the car was registered in 67/68.
