I am not sure about that. A healthy coating of swarfega and a few good shoves and I’m sure you might just about fit. Nobody on here is rude enough to comment about any random bulging at the edges…

Images of Birmingham in the 60’s.

As a kid I grew up in the relatively nice, leafy suburbs between Shirley & Solihull. But every Saturday morning & some weekday evenings Mum would take us to swimming lessons at the Victorian Moseley Rd swimming baths on the edge of Balsall Heath. Those were the earliest experiences we had of an entirely different, vibrant & colourful culture. I was always surprised by the overflowing veg shops, the cinema posters showing the most striking images of dramatic figures (often with swords) saris, turbans & people shouting & laughing but also mess, litter & probably significant hardship. A world away from the comforts of Solihull. These pictures capture some of that. New tower blocks alongside derelict sites. Corner shops & quilted anoraks.
