The Pelham - a Memory of Alum Rock.

I was raised in Pelham Road from 1960 until I left in about 1983. I have many happy memories,and some not so. Pedleys paper shop, the Marvel comics(wish I had kept them), Joan's the grocer's, Tom's the butcher's, Mckay's the wool shop, F.P.Tool's chippy on the corner. Not forgetting East Birmingham Club, Cottrills Lane, and the Pelham Arms. Lots of good families, oh what joy. It was hard but happy most times...
