If at first you don't succeed, try again, then give up - no use being a fool about it !

Oh yes mate. Born in no1 Hillaries Rd. Right opposite Slade Rd School. After a short spell in Alum Rock, we moved into Albert Rd just off Slade Rd.
Went to Slade Rd School until seniors then moved to Wylde Green just near the Yenton.
Love all the old Erdington Pic's guys. Fond memories for me.

Now here's a long gone land mark of Erdington. Bought my first Airfix kit there, bought my first 45 rpm there bought just about everything there. Even ended up living with one of the staff from there.........but that's another story!
