    Can anyone help to identify the location please? (notebook missing)
    The previous photo on the roll was taken at Tyseley loco, the next one at Salisbury! The building far right has the name Rover on it so I assume we are still in the Birmingham area.

    It looks like the west end of Tyseley station to me. The building in the background looks very similar to one that's still there on Hay Hall Road.

    Well, it's certainly not Salisbury!

    I thought Tyseley could be the location, but Google Earth didn’t help. I take it that the loco is of the Castle variety, to an LMS man some of the GWR locos are similar, certainly from this angle.

    Thank you for Tyseley.
