THE BARTON'S ARMS, once a pub and hotel for the ASTON HIPPODROME, whose clients included STAN LAUREL and OLIVER HARDY. Now operates as a THAI RESTAURANT, but still retains style of an OLD VICTORIAN PUB with its tiling and 'snob screens'.

The photo is likely to have been taken from above the railway line forming the boundary of Perry Hall Playing Fields on an approximate bearing of 120 degrees, in the lower centre Wellington Road appears from out of shot and in the centre distance are the Nechells Gas Holders.

Wellington Road extends left and up to the junction of Birchfield Road and continues across as Aston Lane. On Birchfield Road can be seen the distinctive Birchfield Cinema and further on the Holy Trinity Parish Church at the corner of Birchfield Road and Trinity Road just left of centre of the photo, the road then curves towards Newtown.

The small group of buildings within the light coloured rectangle will be Canterbury Road School and the adjacent taller building being a police station.

In the lower left corner the railway platform is that of Perry Barr Station and on the centre left hand side the triangular development is bounded by The Broadway, Davey Road and Normandy Road. Further up on the left is Aston Park containing Aston Hall.

This looks like Aston Birmingham, viewed from Perry Barr.

Zoom in towards top, Nechells gas holders.

I think it's Birchfield in the West Midlands, viewed from the northwest. Appears to be Aston Hall on the left, and the station would by Perry Barr.
