came across this photo the other day and thought you might like to have this copy. Its the family shop run by my grandfather (James Rogers)at 32 Bevington Road. Not sure of the date but think it would be mid to late 1920s.
He was also a boxing trainer and trained Len "Tiger" Smith at Kyrle Hall. He had 3 sons: Raymond (my father), Ernie and Jimmy. Jimmy was a successful amateur boxer butdied following his first professional fight. I'm told James was married a few times and there were other children. I only know of my father's half siblingsGeorge and Lillian Walton though.
Family anecdotes say he was also a bouncer at the original Perry Barr dog track.
My godfather was Leslie Hood, the son of Gentleman Jack Hood, another well known boxer, originally from Lupin Street I believe.
