Rag & Bone Man - a Memory of Acock's Green.

We lived at 1, Northanger Road, which was at right angles to Olton Boulevard East and we have had views down both directions of the Boulevard. I remember the regular visits of the rag and bone man.  Cars were becoming common-place, but a horse and cart seemed very old fashioned.  The horse manure was soon collected up by the keen gardeners in the area. It was a good way of getting rid of the unwanted articles, as the rag and bone man seemed to take all we gave him.
