More about this scene

Clifton House occupies the corner of Fox Hollies Road and Olton Boulevard East, and had probably been only recently completed when the photograph was taken. It remains unchanged today, but the shapely elm tree in the background has gone, presumably a victim of Dutch elm disease. However, the spindly cherry trees on the roundabout look a lot more substantial now.

An extract from West Midlands Living Memories.

Memories of Acock's Green, Clifton House c1965

I don't have a memory. All I would like to know, is what stood here before? As the boulevard has some older houses and the Fox Hollies pub would have stood opposite, so would this have been waste ground or hedges or something? Just curious you understand. Do love all these old photographs of how things used to be yesteryear! Thank you.
