Interesting to note that the Queens Head at six ways was once called Ye Olde Queen in that film. Was it vogue to be retro back then?
I have a picture of the Queens Head and it does say on the back that it is Erdington but I'm not sure if it is.

Yes. But what worries is that house in the first photo. I don't remember it?

I don't remember it either.
I think it's possible that the picture may have been taken before the time we were taken in there.

The house is not in the other photo.

I think you're right, look how old the street lights are, compared to other photo.

The thing I remember most is the square water tower, and next to it, the big hydraulic cylinder, which used to power the extrusion press inside.

Here's an interesting video of the trams around Erdington in the 1950s
I know the chap who uploaded it, but I have never seen it before.
