Image Detail & Specifications

A photograph of Dora Road in Small Heath taken in 1908. The road ran from Coventry Road, opposite Victoria Park, to Somerville Road. The houses on the right that were built up to the pavement rather than featuring a small garden are still there and are Nos. 3 and 5. The property on the left has gone and a small block of flats stand on the site. At the time of this photograph Charles Worrall lived at No.5. However, shortly afterwards, the house was occupied by Herbert and Matilda Hawkins, and the couple's children Lillian and Wilfred. Sparkhill-born Herbert Hawkins worked as a lithographic transfer printer. Next door at No.3, the house closest to the camera, was home to Joseph and Freda Garner. Born in Stapenhill, Derbyshire, Joseph Garner worked as a shop assistant.

Further along the road the four tall gables on the right are also a key landmark of Dora Road. These are still standing and are Nos. 33 to 39. At the time of this photograph No. 33 was the home of Charles Henry Forster, a commercial traveller. His neighbour, Kent-born Thomas Long, was also listed with the same occupation. He lived here with his wife Emily and three children. No. 37 was occupied by the retired jeweller Alfred Cordingley and his wife Alice. The Cordingley family had previously lived on Warwick Road at Solihull. Here in Dora Road their next-door neighbour at No. 39 was Sidney Thomas Knowles.

How To Buy Images

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.


When you buy a downloaded image from me you are able to use it in a wide range of personal projects and media. However, you are not acquiring the copyright of the image - that remains with this website. I am providing the images for your use in accordance with the terms below. All rights, including copyright and database rights are owned by or licensed to as permitted by applicable law. In accessing these web pages, you undertake not to copy, retail, distribute, transmit or broadcast any images for commercial purposes without the prior written permission by myself or in accordance with the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.
