Some history of Spencer Street

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

"At the Birmingham Police Court today Joseph Taylor, of no fixed abode, was charged on remand with breaking and entering the premises of Messrs. Ryland and Duley, in Spencer Street, and stealing various articles of jewellery. Police Sergeant Glover [C4] was passing along the street at three o'clock on the morning of the 21st March, and heard a slight noise in one of the rooms. Later he saw a light in a window. He summoned police assistance, and the premises surrounded. He himself examined the premises, and found the prisoner crouching in a corner of a work-room. Asked why he was there prisoner said, "We have got to live, somehow." He explained that he entered the premises when the door was open, and he had been in all night. The officer found in prisoner's possession 104 silver rings, 100 metal rings, about 50 metal brooches, and strips of silver, of the value of £12., being the property of Mr. Duley. Evidence having been given as to the securing of the premises, the prisoner was committed for trial to the Sessions. Prisoner was also charged with stealing five parts of pencil cases and two sets of sleeve-link, property of Mr. Ryland. He was committed on this charge also."
