A journey down Ledsam Street

Click on the image for a close-up detailed view

This fantastic plan of the shops along old Ledsam Street in Ladywood in the 1940s was plotted from memory by Trevor Mabbett (see posts above and below). My uncle's family pub, the Vesper Bell, can be seen on the left hand bottom corner of the page, standing on the corner of Blythe Street and Ledsam Street.


  1. HI i too am researching my family tree, and happend upon your website while looking up something. I really enjoyed looking through your website, and marvelled at how blessed you are to have so many great pictures of your family. Best of luck to you on your continuing research.


  2. Thanks Michael, very kind words.

    It's amazing how many photos have been sent to me since I started publishing my research. It's better to see the old photos than to have them curling up in boxes.

    Good luck with your family tree, let us know if you have any queries and we will try and advise.
