This is my Reynolds family from Crown Street - wondered if anyone recognises any of them ...Photo taken at family wedding in 1965.
Here is a photo of me aged seven (second row from the top, fifth from the left) from April 1970 at The Elms junior school. I can't believe that all these children here are now over fifty... I remember our teacher, Miss Stevens (on the right), and the teacher's assistant on the left, who's name I unfortunately can't remember.
Can anyone recognise themselves/family members/friends here?

Did anyone know my mum and dad? This is their wedding photo. They were childhood sweethearts. My mum was formerly Dorothy Stone and my dad Roy Cook. they both lived on Lotus street as children. They met when he was seven and my mum was four.
I lived at 24 Saint Ann's well road I was hoping from this general call to meet at the annual get together, any relatives or descendants of Mr Smith the leather / saddler who had the shop number 22 St Ann's Well Road.
Also the people who we lived next door to at 26 St Ann's Well Road.
I have long lost the location of my granddads shop He was a blacksmith Had a premises I have reason to believe somewhere up the Wells road area to complete a bit of my history
Please do not hesitate to contact me on this facebook should you have any information Thank-you 22 June 2017

Good evening all. It is my great hope that someone can assist me. Taking the photos from Picture the Past out of the equation. Does anyone have any images of Beacon Street from the late 1950s upto its demolition. And of interest does anyone have any images of the Greyfrairs Pipe Band from the 1960s/1970s. My Uncle used to play in the band, and I'm trying to track down any photos of him in the line-up. Many thanks in advance Sean

My Dad, Michael Unwin was born in his grandmother's house in Dane St in 1935. His parents Albert and Louisa lived in Caroline St. Albert's parents were Harry and Emma (nee Kilby) and Louisa's parents were Alexander Brown and Mary (nee Staniforth). Dad has Alzheimers so doesn't remember much from recent times but remembers his early years in St Ann's and loves to talk about the 'old days'. I would love to hear from anyone who has knew his family or has any photos of the area in the '30s.
19 June 2015I'm quite interested in writing a ghost story about old St. Ann's. Does anyone know any spooky stories about the area they can start me off with?
LACE WORK........A lot of our grandmother's took in lacework and there have been some nice memories already posted. Today I went to The Loom Restaurant 3 - 5 High Pavement I think it used to be the Lace Hall. They have a huge jacquard loom in the basement which will eventually be on display to the public. I am not advertising here........wouldn't dream of it. There was lace on the loom, (Leavers Loom?) the sort that my Grandma Fox used separate by pulling the threads, she was always at it, even when you visited, piles of the white stuff all over the room. I was tempted to lean over the machine and pull the same threads. Does anyone have any history of 3-5 High Pavement, who occupied it before the Lace Hall and further back?
