Brownhills Bob's conversations

No sorry I cannot remember the telegraph pole, but I was very busy at that time

Thanks Bob. It was a cold day when I took those.

Hi George

It's a technique you develop after years of trying to decipher old aerial photos. Cars, demolished buildings and whether or not folk are parked at factories all help you work out when an image was taken.

It really is a fantastic, and very valuable photo. Thank you so much for sharing this, and all your other wonderful images.

I did a post for you this lunchtime

Cheers Bob

Hi folks, scratch that - the cycling permit has been abolished now.

See here

In favour of the more sensible Greenway Code, drawn up with the London Cycling Campaign.



The bridge behind Taylor's Cafe if I'm not mistaken? Nice pic!



Brilliant. Just as a I remember it.

Thank you.



George, it's all wonderful - I can't thank you enough for the efforts you've taken. Just to see these has brought memories flooding back - not just for me, but readers of the blog, too.

Wonderful Thanks Bob

That was mine, you muppet ;0)

Nice pic, George. Not forgetting the Autocraft, Raden Engineering and Watney plant hire periods in the 70s-80s.

Full mapping record for anyone interested is at the foot of this post

Nice work.



This house was my Nan and granddads house. In my eyes this house is a monstrosity, the old cottage was hand built, this looks like it was bought from a catalog. Where is the grass? the lovely old cherry tree, the ponds and the pool so carefully tended to for years by my grandparents?? All gone in the aid of making a fast profit. I'm sorry Bob but i will forever disagree with your lovingly restored title for this picture. more like heartlessly ruined.
