A B row Aston-Birmingham

These photo's were on here before but have not seen them lately. Anyway one shows the plaque but am not able to determine which corner house it is. One picture shows the opposite side of Coleshill St. or whatever it is. I think the plaque must be on the east corner of Princess St., that seems to be where the boundary line is. Actually. if you follow the boundary line, it seems to meander all over the place and suggest that it follows leats and tailraces of old mills; and rivers. I think that was the procedure. Maybe more permanent markers than anything else. Sad to see it all wiped clean is it not. Just old worn out buildings but they anchored our lives for many years. Now just the plaque remaining and the little girls would be about 88 now.

I think the caption in the first photograph is wrong. There were separate markets at Gosta Green and here on this triangle. The Gosta Green market lasted until the late 19th-century but this building ceased to serve as a market hall many years before [mid-to-late 1850s].

You may have clicked on just when I was uploading it again due to a typo I had spotted. Sorry about that.

A B Row doesn't exist any more. Last year saw a car park on the Eastside Locks land, that still hasn't been built on.



Don't really take photos much of this corner any more, or not recently when nothing has changed here. Also not got much reason to go this way since my work moved from the Science Park into the City Core last autumn.
