Before heading off down Steelhouse Lane we can take a little peek back down Bull St as far as Corporation St

Now we can take a stroll down Steelhouse Lane, the first couple of photos show what it was like down this end of the city before Birminghams first slum clearances.

It looks like the photo up-loader is playing up again, the two photos I mention are at either end of the first row.

Sorry I do not have a definite date, but I would place it as between 1900 & 1910.

Of course there are many side streets and alley off Steelhouse Lane and the first one we come to is Slaney St just past the Wesleyan Assurance Building and before the Gaumont Cinema. I have only got the one photo of this narrow street that was more like an alley than a street. This photo shows bomb damage during the war.

The next side street on our trip down Steelhouse Lane is Upper Priory which led through to Old Square and Lewis's.

On the other side of the road was the heavily industrialised Weaman St that ran down to Bath St.

Our next side street was Newton St that divided the Crown Courts from the County Courts. We have a photo of the Steelhouse Lane End and one of the Corporation St end.
