Operated by Thomas and Winifred Bailey, this greengrocer's shop was located on the north side of Dudley Road at Winson Green, a few doors from the Yorkshire Grey public house. Thomas Bailey was born in Swindon, Wiltshire around 1871. His wife originated from Ross in Herefordshire. The couple had two sons Thomas and Christopher but only one boy can be seen in the photograph stood in front of the vegetables. The boy looks around six or seven years old which dates the photograph to around 1905. In 1915 the shop was straddled by the milliner Harry Hall and the tobacconist's shop owned by Frederick Collins.
