Birmingham’s Back-to-Backs

01/11/2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Many of you will have heard of the National Trust’s restoration of a court of 19th century back to back houses in Hurst Street, Birmingham, which are open to visitors. These were small dwellings arranged around a courtyard or in terraces, each of which shared at least one wall with another house. Typically, only the front of each house had a door and windows. The inhabitants of several houses shared a water pump and outdoor toilet facilities. Such houses were commonplace in central Birmingham but almost all were swept away in the slum clearances of the 1960s. Clive Katz will talk to us about the lives of the people who lived in the NT houses in four periods: the 1840s, 1870s, 1930s and 1970s.

Note the speaker is different from those originally advertised.

At the Eden Centre and online.
