1901 census


Brummie babby
I was researching the 1901 census and came across the address 8 1/2 (eight and a half) Bullring,there were about 4 pages of occupants of varying occupations/trades and wondered what the building was,my husband suggested Rowton House but it was only a guess.I would appreciate any replies.


master brummie
Rowton House was on Alcester Street and according to info on Google it didn't open until 1903.
However, the 1900 Kelly's Directory (1901 not on Ancestry) has this entry for 8 and a half Bullring
Interestingly it is not listed in 1905.
