RE: BIRMINGHAM BACK TO BACKS

 by phil , Wed Dec 07, 2011 10:32 am

I have said this before, I am not a fan of the back to backs, the main reason being that they give a very sanitised view of living in a back to back environment. My grandchildren have been to view these showhouses and their response was yes they were small but they were lovely little places and they wouldn't have minded living there.

I don't think they do anything to represent how hard life was in this type of housing often with families up to 15 or more living in one living room and two bedrooms. I have never visited them and to be honest I don't think I ever will. I think the Black Country Museum does a much better job.
