After Tyburn Road we continue on down Bromford Lane passing a seemingly out of place line of dwellings down to the Wheelwright Road junction and just past there we can see the Stewart & Lloyds factory.

Having lived in Balsall Heath on and off from 1947 I have to inform you the reason the red light district in Balsall Heath existied was mainly because of the immigrant population and among them there were many young muslim men. Many I knew personally.

I remember Balsall Heath from much earlier than you until they Demolished Varna Road, Princess Road and Alexander Road which by the way were all in Edgbaston. They demolished those three roads in the 70's getting rid of some good Victorian houses and replacing them with boxes because they thought it would rid them of a problem. All they did was move the problem to the other side of the park and Cheddar Road.
