Annewiggy, Heathite - Fantastic, thank you, solved an age-old problem for me. Heathite. As a very small child I visited Grange Road. Two houses, confusing, but could never remember who we visited. Now, what you have found for me - Thomas Simpson was my dad’s grandad at 322, and what you both found, Arthur Lote at 318 (the Baldwins, cousin were at St Thomas's Road.) Now the Lotes were lifelong friends of my parents - early twenties, played tennis, visited silent films, but Arthur ran paper chases with my dad, played football. He had the first car, took us to relatives etc we called them uncle and aunt. Now I must go to Blitz topic.

Hello Kaga, thank you for the feedback. I'm glad to be able to help. By the way, Annewiggy mentioned the 1939 register, you are there too. You should not be, because as Annewiggy has rightly pointed out, if you're still here then it should be kept private.

Heathite, Annewiggy. Not sure about Grange Road in the old days, but Sutton Stop was really Hawkesbury Junction (stop). Over Grange Road bridge there was Hawkesbury Railway Halt and Hawkesbury Farm, across the fields was Hawkesbury Hall In Parrotts Grove, and Hawkesbury School and dance hall. Greg. AG Road was Hawkesbury and so was the Slough Pool, I had never heard it called Wyken Pool until this forum - also, Hawkesbury Collieries, and all were in Foleshill, until McGrory decided to split them and put Victora Colliery in Foleshill and Craven Colliery in Wyken, but Potters Green in Walsgrave - how he did that I have no idea.

Heathite Looking at those Grange Road numbers again, on the east side you have 2, 4, 6, then jump to 120 because of the allotments. But 2, 4, 6 were down the side of Foxford playing fields, hidden behind a tall hedgerow, now Longford Park.

Midland red Wow, just been reading through this topic, loved the advert for the rink 1937 how about that, used to go there then, wonder if they weren't allowed to advert the kids boxing shows they had occasionly .The thing that gripes me everything about the area boats etc, I cant find one photo of the canal drained of water or mentioned was a phenomenal sight, you would have had a field day, with all the boats lobsided. some terrific shots.
