Summer Lane

Aston, Birmingham

Interesting buildings in Summer Lane near its Constitution Hill junction.
Amazingly, they were still there the last time I passed by.

I used to walk past these shops/cafe on my way to school at St. Chads. There's a public toilet there that saved a little boys undies quite often!! I lived just off Summer Lane on Hanley Street. Thanks for the memories!!!

What a fantastic archive! Thanks
The “Hand Made Bread” bakery was owned by a Mr Barry Loat.
A regular stop for me as I worked at the Ambulance Station in Henrietta St, for many years.
