My main argument with the way Manzoni did things was he didn't bother to sort out the good from the bad. He cleared the whole area, whilst I agree that all of the back to backs needed to go and some of the back terraces.

He was also responsible for the wanton destruction of some fantastic Georgian and Victorian properties. Not a 100 yards from where I lived in my back to back hovel stood some of the nicest properties you could ever wish to own.

Why Ashted Row and Great Brook St had to go I will never know surely they could have been incorporated into the plans somehow. It was the same with Balsall Heath Rd and Princess and Varna Roads. Yes they were red light areas, but some of the housing was great. They could have got rid of the vice without demolishing the area.
