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 Gooch Street.

"Two lives were lost in a fire which broke out in Gooch Street, Birmingham, in the early hours of yesterday morning. In a small two-storey house lived Mrs. Lynch, an elderly lady , with five lodgers, one of whom was a boy. All were asleep when the alarm was given. The fire brigade were quickly on the spot with ladders by means of which Mrs. Lynch and two of the lodgers were rescued. A third man, named Howard, jumped from a bedroom window and escaped with slight injury. The firemen entered the burning bedroom and bravely searched for the remaining two in the blinding smoke and flame. They came upon an old man, named Joseph Durham, employed as a printer, lying with his arms outstretched upon the boy Ernest Howard, aged 6, whom he had evidently made an attempt to rescue. Both were speedily removed to the hospital, but the boy died on the way, and Howard succumbed to his injuries in the afternoon."
