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

"An inquest was held yesterday by the borough coroner [Mr. Hawkes], at the Public Office, Moor Street, on the body of Sarah White
, wife of Samuel White, of 75, Foundry Road, Winson Green. On Wednesday the deceased got into train at New Street Station. The train stopped at Winson Green
Station, and shortly after it recommenced moving the deceased got up and said, "Is this Winson Green? I must get out here." She was told not to do so by
several passengers who were in the compartment, as the train was in motion; but, notwithstanding this, she opened the carriage door, and when endeavouring to alight
fell upon the metals, the wheels of some of the carriages passing over her head, causing instantaneous death. The jury returned a verdict "Accidental death."
