Our family reunion was a great success and I was amazed at the intrest the younger generation showed in the Family Tree so this thread is about the people the courtyards and Cromwell Street School with photo's they might not have seen before ....and if you can identify anyone on a paticular photo ..please do as names have been lost and time is ticking away
The 1st Photo is in a courtyard at the top of Cromwell Street at the Great Lister Street end
Showing either a party to celabrate the end of the war or a Coronation party

Below is a typical plan of the back to back houses in which 12 familys lived, Coloured yellow is the amount of room one family would have.... size 14 feet 6 inches by 10 feet ...L.F stands for Living Kitchen as that was the only room downstairs and above that one bedroom the same size and if you had an attic it was on the Top (3rd floor) .We had one in Cromwell St but you could not go up the stairs because they had gone rotten. Below the Living Kitchen was the cellar or the coal hole. 
 All these type of  houses stopped being built in 1914..at the start of WW2 there were 38,000 Back to Backs and over 100,000 tunnel Back houses in Brum till the Blitz came and started to blow them up...... before the City Council started to demolish them in the slum clearance and built even bigger slums than the ones that they knocked down

I just love looking at these old photos.

I have a few pictures in my family tree folders, although no interesting stories to accompany them.

Maybe we could have a new section dedicated to old photographs.
