Some history of Albert Road

More information on Albert Road to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Albert Road from another page. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Albert Road. In the meantime, I have uploaded a few photographs and newspaper articles. Oh, there is also plenty of other information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a good starting place.

Albert Road was seemingly laid out in the mid-1860's. By November 1865 advertisements started to appear for "cottage residences with large gardens pleasantly situated in Albert Road."

"An inquest will held tomorrow on the body of an elderly man, Thomas Baker [73], who was found suffering from the effects of revolver shots. He was lying in the yard at the back of 157, Albert Road, Aston, where he lived. He is said to have been in failing health, and had recently been suffering from insomnia. The wounds, which proved fatal in a short time, are believed to have been self-inflicted, but whether accidentally or not will be determined at the inquest."

Ansell's Bittermen - You Can't Beat 'Em

"John Ernest Berry, aged 36, secretary of the Birmingham Trades Council, met with fatal injuries in a motorcycle accident yesterday, and died shortly after in the Queen's Hospital. Mr Berry was riding his motorcycle, to which was attached a sidecar containing his wife and two children. In turning into Bristol Road, Birmingham, he was in danger of colliding with a tramcar. He succeeded in avoiding the tramcar, but knocked down a pedestrian, and came into contact with the kerbstone. He was thrown from his bicycle, and his wife and children were thrown from the sidecar. All five persons were taken to the hospital, where Berry, who was unconscious, died about an hour after admission. His daughter Laura, aged five, together with the pedestrian, William Constable, of West Bromwich, were treated at the hospital, the other occupants of the car escaping with a shaking. Mr. Berry, who resided in Albert Road, Aston, had been secretary of the Birmingham Trades Council for ten years, and was twice member of the Aston Town Council, being the joint nominee of Socialist bodies and Trade Unions."

Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha by Franz Xaver Winterhalter [1842]

"The works of art, by being publicly exhibited and offered for sale, are becoming articles of trade, following as such the unreasoning laws of markets and fashion; and public and even private patronage is swayed by their tyrannical influence."
