National Trust Back To Back
« on: November 09, 2009, 04:42:25 PM »
Hi All Has anyone visited the back to back houses preserved opposite the Birmingham Hippdome. Although we never lived in a back to back house.We lived in a terraced house in Gosford Street Balsall heath. But my wife & her family lived in a back to back house in Studley Street off ladypool Road until 1961. Going through some old papers of my wifes moms some months ago we found a bill for electric installation in to that house in 1949 she had 3 plugs & three light fittings installed for the princely of 6-6s it had been gas lit before that. my 2 grans  had gas lighting in their houses until the late 1940s or early 1950s.
