The above image is a small version of the actual download and measures 463 pixels in width. However, what you see is what you get in a larger file. You can download a file size to suit your requirements. For example, a download of up to 3000 pixels will provide you with an image capable of being placed in a large picture frame. Below are two segments of the image measuring 3000 pixels. The well-taken photo provides good detail.
Captured in 1906, this photograph shows Byron Road in Small Heath, an extension one could say of Bolton Road that continued down to Waverley Road. The building on the left, the former Council School survived into the 21st century as the Small Heath School Sixth Form Centre. The pinnacled brick supports for the entrance gate seen here behind the children also remained. Everything else of Byron Road that can be seen in this image has vanished.
Just beyond the children is a horse and cart loaded with what looks like coal. The coal man is possibly Charles Henry Hodierne who operated as a coal merchant from premises close to the school. There is some wall lettering advertising this business on the end wall of the terraced housing. Charles had earlier traded in Lawley Street. Like his father, he had earlier worked as a carter when living in Garrison Lane as a young man. He lived there when he married Annie Nearey in 1894.
Paypal is the preferred payment for this site - it is one of the safest online payment methods and allows you to pay with a number of cards. You DO NOT need a Paypal account to pay but perhaps you should consider setting one up - it's free and easy to do so. Why have your credit card details with lots of retailers when you could just have one account that is accepted by many websites. I DO NOT see your credit/debit card details.
Each image is priced on the website and each image has an "add to basket" button. When you press one of these buttons you will be directed to your shopping basket. You can remove items by updating the basket. If you wish to continue viewing images and/or buy further photos you can use the "continue shopping" button to return to the page you were browsing. Please ensure you are selecting the option in the drop-down menu for the image you require. You can always delete items from your basket before you checkout. Once you are finished browsing and shopping simply review your purchases and, if you're ready, checkout.
When you are ready to pay press the "proceed to checkout" button. Paypal account holders simply log in and pay with a click. Paypal generates an invoice for you and a copy is sent to the website when your images will be sent via e-mail with attachments. I like to do it this way as I feel I can provide that little extra customer service with a friendly message and some advice on how to safely store your images on your computer's hard drive or other media.
Your image will be sent to the e-mail address used to pay via Paypal. If you prefer to receive your image via another e-mail address please leave an instruction in the "message to merchant" box on your invoice.
All orders are processed as quickly as possible but the office is not a 24/7 operation. I may be on the road taking photographs, on a cycle ride or even down the pub! I do however like to keep everyone happy and, as such, I generally process orders on the same day. You are a valued customer and are treated as such.
