More about this scene

This section of the High Street is now pedestrianised, but the east side of the street is not greatly changed from this view. Timothy Whites is still a handsome building, though it is W H Smith now. Pre-1950s pictures of the High Street show several timber-framed buildings, but most had gone by 1960.

Other Memories from Bromsgrove

I trained to teach at Shenstone new College 1971-1975 (inc B.ED) I loved it. I would love to hear from anyone who remembers times with me at the college and find out what they are doing now

Next to Wise's was Mrs Simmonds toy shop, then a drapers, then my Aunts' Fish & Chip shop - Plante's. Further on was a greengrocers, then my favourite shop, Smith's cake shop!
