This photograph was taken at the Tower Ballroom.  Every year all the taxi drivers in Birmingham used to organise a Christmas party for children in care, unfortunately I do not know what year this photograph was taken, possibly early seventies.

 

 

Dad became a taxi driver in the early sixties after suffering from led poisoning.  A lot of people may remember Mom and Dad because the Taxi was always parked outside the flat on Ladywood Road.

 

Although Dad is not in this photograph, my Mom Edna Jones and my uncle Harold Heath are, both now deceased.   Mom is the lady in the white coat just off centre in the middle and Harold is just above Mom standing by the back of a taxi next to the lads wearing baseball caps.

THE STAFF - many thanks to all those featured for helping me and letting me "wander" the Tower for these photo's and the memorabilia

 

Memories

 

I grew up in Ladywood, and the Tower was always a focal point for myself and my mates, I never thought that years later, I would meet my wife there, that was over 50 years ago, so it holds special memories for me.
