Mr and Mrs Winscott - Newsagents, Watford Road 1951
Lived in Watford Road as a child and remember the Winscotts, they had a daughter Cynthia. Bought fireworks from there for bonfire night.
On the opposite corner was an Ansells outdoor. It sold draught beer and on each Sunday I had to go up the road for Dad’s beer (in a pop bottle) and a bottle of Masons ‘American Cream Soda’.
Brenda Morris, the Wincotts daughter, ran the Tuck Shop in Northfield Road much frequented by the boys from King’s Norton Boys School up until the early 1990s. A lovely lady with always a smile for everyone.
Very interesting! Got here doing a search on Triplex Glass, Kings Norton, where my father, Norman Hill, worked in the early fifties as a glassblower. I was born on Middlemore Road in 1951 a bit east of Northfield station. Still remember it after all these years!
