Hi. I was at Little Green Lane, left Birmingham at age 10 in 1961 cos my Dad's factory, Clearhooters, transferred him to Nuneaton. My name was Carol Suett (I know!!!). I have photos somewhere, I will look them out. I know there was a little boy in one of them called Kevin! Wondering if it could be someone on this site? We had our photo took washing our hands?

Hi Cazsahaw

that would be great as my brother and sister were born
around that time if could put the photos on site for me and
other people that use the site would be nice to look at.

Keith.

Hi Keith yes your right.I remember Oliver he had a flash zephyr zodiac. It was a very close community. My parents ran a Sunday school  for a couple of years at LGL school. We had loads of kids come. The memories are great, I grew up there very quickly. Very proud that my father and family were part of it.I know my father loved the people and was gutted when he had to close up..in fact he was never the same after moving.good luck to you and yours for 2017 health and happiness. Roger

Hello Roger. I think you will remember me. I livid in Wyndcliff Rd with my brother and 5 sisters. I was a friend of yours and you brother Keith. I worked in your Das butchers shop and Keith's fruit and veg shop from time to time. Your Dad always paid me with a pork chop and a tin of beans. I remember the chocolate shop and the closed down pub owned by the Downie's. Happy days.

hi Peter.So good to hear from you.Of course I remember you and your lovely family. especially your dog called sooty, I think, and every time you said flies she would launch into the air.Didnt you live at 21. Well all my family have passed now the latest was Keith with cancer. I don't think he suffered long as he died on the operating table and I spoke to him a couple of days before.  I live in New Zealand now, my final settling place LOL feel free to e mail me should you wish to monty16@xtra.co.nz   Good health and happiness Peter. kind regards Roger

Hello All
Here are some photos of Green Land and little Green Lane. I Live quite away from Small Heath but I plan to visit my sister next month so I will pop down to that area and take a few photos. I think you will be in for a shock because so much has changed .
