Cheers Alan Smallman Memories of Allan Smallman I have just discovered the Ladywood Website and am amazed. We lived in a back-to-back house 1 back of 22 Clement Street, Ladywood. My dad was a very bad cripple and I had poor eyesight. I knocked about with Kenny Jones and Deidre who lived on Reservoir Road, I had many friends who were very important to me like Colin Hardy and his sister Margaret, plus Valerie Hawkins.
There are so many holes in my family tree. Then there was another shop then my father's, with the Inner Circle 8 bus stop outside. I really look forward to seeing your web page every time you update. My grandfather Bill, is now 91 years old. Cook was losing his mind. New one needed, black hob constant need of blacking, cooking stove in the corner of the living room, big brown crock sink in the scullery area with cold water tap which sometimes froze.
