Dead opposite these houses my parents first marital home was built between 1928 and 1930. I attach a photograph of my father rolling the soil before laying the lawn and rockery in about 1930 and one of my mother sitting in the garden after my sister was born in 1932.

Is this Hyron Hall? I don't think it exists anymore but there is a road very close called Hyron Hall Road

The 'Rec'. Officially the recreation Ground! The Parkies hut was round and had a stove and a thatched roof.It would be impossible to count the number of hours spent by local children in this park doing all sorts of things, including playing sports!

Acocks Green Railway Station. The Police Station with it's 'ornate tile work' was just beyond the road bridge over the railway.

Broad Road Church School was hereabouts. We went to Sunday School here in the early 1950's.

Fowlers Dairies moved to this set of old farm buildings here in 1950's. They still had horses in their milk carts but they were gradually replaced with electric floats.

Acocks Green School. Was Nursery, Infant, Junior and Secondary, but then I left in 1954 at the end of Junior School, so may have changed, since then

Where Pool Farm Road, Dolphin Lane and Shirley Road all meet. The houses to the left of this pin can still be seen on Google Earth and are recognisable by their unusually shaped roofs. One of them is no. 282 Shirley Road although the street numbers given on Google Earth are not accurate.

This group of trees is still clearly visible in Fox Hollies Park and can easily be seen on Google Earth. Look just down the path from Shirley Road Post Office to the trees.
