Before the Estate
The first set of pictures is the east end of the Estate taken from somewhere near the bottom of Margaret Grove looking towards the sweeping gradiant which leads up to Park Hill Road.
The line of trees on the open countryside picture is probably close to the line of Moor Pool Avenue and the brook in the foreground the stream leading down to Chad Brook from the Moor Pool.
The goalposts are close or on the land where the first sporting facility was built - the tennis courts so sport on the land already had some history. The ground does not look particulary level for football with the brook acting as a boundary. The second picture shows the first houses built at the bottom of Park Hill Road and behind them is the area the opening sod cutting ceremony took place.
The first house on the right was used as a temporary Harborne Tenants Estate Office and features as a background to a group picture of the local Moor Pool Council committee.
The middle group of houses included a pair which were temporarily linked by internal doorways and used as a community facility.
