How fantastic! This is my great uncle Allan. The last of the Birds butchers in Brownhills. My granny (his sister) used to play organ in the Regents theatre for the silent movies. I believe the Birds were an established family in the town for many decades. I'd love to hear any more information anyone has about the Birds. Thanks for keeping these great memories alive.
Thanks George, that really is most excellent!
