Thinking back to my childhood, when we lived for a time in Summer Hill Road with the Laing family, next door to the Hulbert family.  This would be in 1951/3 or so before moving in with my gran Rose at 3 back of 20 Sun Street, one of the courts, just down from the Sun pub on the Bristol Road.  I remember Ruby who had a very large family, and Hilda and husband with two sons, one called Harold.


Many happy memories of playing in that court before we moved around 1954/55 to Selly Oak.


On Sun Street I played with a girl called Susan whose father had a shop about halfway down - what was it called?


If anyone has any memories, would love to hear from you.
