Memories of Mike Rogers

 

I have just been looking the Old Ladywood website and it brought back many memories of my early life.

 

I lived at 6 back of 73 Coplow Street (The Shrubbery) from birth in 1943 to 1958, except from 1948-51 when my Dad was posted to South Shields with the Royal Artillery and we all went with him. Our Grandmother remained at Coplow Street. Unfortunately, she died not long after we returned to Coplow Street.

 

In the photographs for Coplow Street I can tell you that the shop shown at No 73 Coplow Street was named Tustin’s, certainly while we were there.

 

My sister, brother and me all went to St Patrick’s School on Dudley Road. At the top of the terrace there was a bomb site where we kid’s played. My brother emigrated to Australia in 1968. When our Dad died in 1989 he came home for the funeral and we visited Coplow Street for the first time since 1958. We were surprised to see houses all over the bomb site leaving nowhere for the kids to play.

 

We would regularly climb over the fence onto the Harborne railway line and use the track as a short cut to and from Summerfield Park.

 

Happy days!

I am making contact with you as I have just come across your website on Ladywood. What a fabulous website and I congratulate you.

 

I am tracing my Grandmothers family – Scott, who lived in Coplow Street from mid/late 1800’s to mid-1900. They lived at 86 Coplow Street. Robert and Elizabeth (Betsy) Scott with 12 children. My grandmother was the 9th child, Josephine.

 

If there is any information or someone who may be able to provide information regarding the life of this family associated with your group I would be most pleased to have some contact.

 

I live in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Kind Regards,

Caroline
