Just had this interesting enquiry from Ray Hart, who’s looking for a former workmate who lived at least for a time in the high rise blocks in Brownhills, and worked at Hardy Spicer (Now GKN Driveline) in Erdington, near Castle Bromwich.
I’ll let Ray explain:
Good afternoon Bob.
I’m searching for a very old pal of mine Ray Fryer.
Ray and I worked together at Hardy Spicer in Erdington circa 1962, at the time Ray and his wife lived Lozells. In 1967 I think? They lived in one of those blocks of flats on the left as you drove into Brownhills from Birmingham. Waine, Bayley & Humphries Houses.
There’s no problem at all. I’m sure many of us have been having a good sort out as a result of Covid 19. During one such sort, I came across some photo’s of Ray and his toddler daughter playing with my toddler son, in our garden taken in the summer of 1967.
Like me he would be in his mid seventies. It would be brilliant to meet him again, and of course, give him the photographs.
Look forward to any info my may be able come by.
Did you know Ray Fryer or his family? I don’t recognise the name, but I do know many people in the Brownhills and wider area worked at Hardy Spicer so I think we have a good chance of reuniting old workmates here.
If you can help, please do. If you know anything, please mail me, preferably on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com and I’ll hook you up.
You can comment on this post too, but obviously I may have to edit any personal info posted, but will pass it on.
Thanks to Ray for a lovely enquiry and I wish him luck in his search.
