South Birmingham Businesses
I'm indebted to Geoff Thompson for allowing me access to his
of photographs of Birmingham businesses. I think the
of long lost local shops are priceless and are sure to stir some
memories! Please get in touch if you have a story to tell about
any of the shops, pubs or garages pictured on these pages.
The photographs were originally taken to record advertising hoardings
and signs. This explains the marks on some of them. However, I don't
think these marks reduce the impact these pictures make and I hope you
agree. They cover a period from the late 1940's upto the late 1960's.
I very much hope to visit many of the locations shown to take modern
views of the scenes today. This will take some time so please bear with
me! To see if a picture has a modern view just hover your mouse
pointer over it.
