St Peter’s Church is upper right. Yardley St is directly opposite. Cannot work out how many streets are visible and therefore whether the street nearest the front (with shop) is Raglan St, Winchester St or Colchester St. My great grandparents lived in Lower Nelson St in 1891 which must be somewhere on Prof’s pic saved by Lauri of Hillfields (post 331)

I think the butterfly flats are in Yardley St. In between the flats and St Peter's, slightly lower down, is the chapel on the corner of Vine St which was used by Freddies and the shop front is the back side window of Brightwalls the decorators shop. Most of the area you see was demolished. I cannot remember the name of the side street that Brightwalls ran up but there was a pub on the other corner. Thumbs up PS, sorry but I am relating to the photo, on the map it is out of view to the upper left. Edited by member, 3rd Jun 2019 5:11 pm

This might help! I think the street was Castle Street

I wrongly assumed that the photo was taken from the right side of the map towards the left side but I now realise that the square spire at St Peter's was at the other end of the church and that photo was taken from city centre end towards the football ground. I was hoping to find a photo of great grandparents' house in either Lower Nelson St or Vauxhall Terrace.

Yes scrutiny, I cannot remember the name of the pub but I know it was independent of any brewery chain (Free House was the term) but my dad, whose aunt and uncles kept licensed premises, told me that one day when we passed on the bus. Edited by member, 4th Jun 2019 12:20 pm

Many thanks MR for the photo. Brings back that memory of what my father said that day.

I previously wrote a few days ago and lost it before I could complete it but it went off somewhere. The photos opened a can of worms as usual, one in particular of the Swanswell pub, taken from the mill side of White St. Not the pub so much as the weeping willow tree outside the exit which appears in so many of the old pics. Many a time I was lifted for a drink of water from the fountain under its shade. I suppose the fountains are all gone now! Which brings me to another request if you may be able to help me with. Aerial photos of the Hillfields area. There was one of the Singer factory, picking up Wellington St, which is short and stops at Yardley St. My interest being my gran’s house, Back 13 Canterbury St. standing detached more or less in the centre of today's carpark, the old school playground was her boundary. If perhaps you know of a link of some sort I would appreciate it. My thanks again and regards to all at the Forum. lnyoni.
