Some history of The Wonder Inn on Brearley Street in Aston New Town in Birmingham in Warwickshire
The Wonder Inn was opened as a beer house and located at No.142 [pre-street numbering changes of 1883-4] on the south side of Brearley Street, not too far from the junction of New Town Row. After the street was re-numbered the address was No.22.
The property was de-licensed by 1906 and converted into a registered lodging house.
More information on the Wonder Inn on Brearley Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Wonder Inn 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 The Wonder Inn. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"At the Birmingham Polioe Court, today, the Corporation proceeded against Maria Sherrington, of 83½, Hatchett Street, for allowing
overcrowding to take place at No. 22, Brearley Street, a house registered for letting lodgings. Mr. Prideaux prosecuted, and Mr. P. Baker defended. Inspector W. Childs
visited the house on January 21st, and found that a room which had been registered for two adults contained three adults and a child. A fine was imposed of 5s. and
costs. A second summons was withdrawn."
