Some history on Alcester Street at Deritend in Birmingham in the County of Warwickshire
More information on Alcester Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Alcester Street from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Alcester Street. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"A Birmingham Corporation bus driver, giving evidence at an inquest before the City Coroner today, said that his vehicle was
fitted with the new headlamp mask on the off side, and under normal conditions this gave him a ray of light forward of about 10 to 15 yards. The bus concerned
had knocked down Polly Gertrude Fowler, married woman, of 33, Allcock Street, Birmingham, a charwoman, on her way to work on Wednesday morning at 6.20.
She was in Alcester Street at the time and the bus concerned had just turned out of High Street Bordesley, into Alcester Street. A verdict of "Accidental
death" was recorded."
