Here we have another example of the poorly informed little rich boy sounding off on a subject that they know very little about. Its time for a little history lesson. Varna Rd, Princess Rd and Alexander Rd were all west of the River Rea and therefore were part of another rich area of Birmingham namely Edgbaston.

They were only allowed to be clumped in with Balsall Heath when they gained a reputation as a red light area. They were never in fact a part of Balsall Heath.

The housing in those streets was quite nice and was nothing like the housing of most of Balsall Heath. When the council demolished them just to get rid of the red light area it was an act of legal vandalism. Take a look at these two photos and you will see just what I mean they are a sort of before and after. Only in this case it is the before that is best.
