Some history of Moor Street
More information on Moor Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Moor 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 Moor Street. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"About four o'clock, on Tuesday morning, an accident, which is likely to prove fatal, occurred in Moor Street. The new street, now in
course of completion, and which will join Moor Street and Park Street, near Bordesley Street, runs parallel with the Great Western Railway, and is protected from the
rails by a stout fence. Police Constable Avery  whilst passing this spot at the time mentioned had his attention drawn towards the railway by the moaning
of some person, apparently in great pain. The sufferer proved to be an Irish labourer, named Patrick Flanagan, aged sixty, and was at once conveyed to the General
Hospital, where he lies in a very dangerous condition. When at the hospital the man made a statement to the effect that had spoken to some men, who had thrown him over,
but the Police Constable stated that he had been drinking freely during the previous night."
