A stunning bit of recent local history dropped in my lap unexpectedly today with an email from reader and friend of the blog Andy Wood, who’s sent me a whole bunch of interesting photos.
I’m going to go first with these, as I know this is a much sought-after topic and one I’m often asked about – Taylors Cafe, that used to stand on Pelsall Road, Brownhills, just opposite Wallace Road.
The well-loved cafe was razed for new housing ten years or more back (does anyone know exactly when?), but it seems Andy paid a visit just before it closed.
I have some pictures of Taylors Cafe Pelsall Road taken the week prior to it being demolished. They include some interior pictures and include of some of the staff.
I also have pictures of the path between the old pig farm and Pelsall Road before it was developed
all the best
Andy actually sent me loads of wonderful additional stuff, which I’ll post up in due course – but for now, wallow in the memories of smoke, steam, sticky sauce bottles and soss, Egg, Chips and beans with and a large mug o’ tay.
Have any memories or anything further to add? Please do comment or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
