  1. This video might gives some indication of what buildings survived on Attercliffe Road 15 years or so after the war. My conclusion is that the council did a better job of destroying buildings than the Luftwaffe.

    Hope For 2020

    Yes it's in a pretty bad state. Probably take public funding again for any restoration. Can't see the council putting their hands in their pocket.

    Hope For 2020

    Very much hoping so. But as we know, when the council see the colour of money, history and heritage doesn't mean anything to them. Hoping to see a halt of such destruction, but we shouldn't hold our breathe.
  4. Very so often a milk float (more of a van than float) delivers milk on my road. As soon as I see it all of a sudden I feel like a giddy school kid again because of the memories it brings back.
  5. I also often look at then and now pictures and videos, but after looking I get a sence of sadness and anger because of what's been lost. Attercliffe Road is a fine example of great and grand buildings demolished for what?! To be replaced by shrubs, weeds and carparks.

  7. There were loads of these old street lights on Lound Road off Handsworth Road. All removed just recently to be replaced by the led ones.

  10. Was there a particular reason why the stone cobbles were layed at an angle so to say? I love coming across stone cobbled streets, makes me think about what once was.
