LANSDOWNE STREET13/07/2017 MEMORIES.                                                                      Hi Ted, My name is Len Gill. I used to live in Lansdowne Street from 1956/1966. I lived with my grandparents Clara & Arthur Hasty who had three sons Arthur, Peter, and Geoffery they all worked at Barker & Allen's. They drank in the Oak Tavern most nights. I had an aunty Ethel who lived at 128 Peel Street opposite the gardens and she drank in the Peel every night, she would always have a bottle of stout Guinness or Mackersons and she played dominoes every night in there.            Regards Len Gill

My Mom and Dad both came from this area. My Mom lived in Lansdowne Street at the rear of number 25 in The Poplars, no. 2 I think, her maiden name was Smith. My Dad Cyril Barnard lived in Foundry Road, I'm not sure of the number. I also had and Aunt and Uncle who lived in Winson Street, up the top end near to Dudley Road. I can remember as a child visiting my Nans in Lansdowne St, and waiting for the bus on the bridge, to get back into Birmingham. It was great to look through the gaps in the metal and try to see the trains or if you were lucky a canal boat making its way along the canal.
