This is a narrow street (court) lined with houses landlocked within the block and only accessible by a narrow passage next to the Old Bull's Head PH. The houses only had windows facing into the court and half of them used to back onto the Birmingham Battery and Metal Company - a somewhat noisy neighbour. This is typical of the living conditions of the poorer people who lived in the city centre.

The site of the 16th century Golden Lion pub. It was taken down and rebuilt in 1910/11 in Cannon hill Park to rescue it from dereliction. What's left of it may yet return as part of a regeneration scheme for the area.

St. John's Deritend. A chapel was established here in the 14th century and was maintained by the Guild of St John. Their Guildhouse still exists in the form of the Old Crown Inn. The church was demolished when Digbeth/Deritend was widened - a fate that befell all the buildings on this side of the road.

When it was demolished it was already in a state of dereliction, having been bombed during the war.

These were the offices and Works of the Anglo-French company who were one of the first car manufacturers in the country. They used to be the premises of the Birmingham Battery and Metal Company and were demolished to make way for the Digbeth Institute in about 1908.

Picture taken over Moseley St looking NNE. The viaduct carries the GWR Oxford & B'ham railway with Snow Hill Station off to the left. In the foreground running left to right are Rea St, River Rea & Birchall St, crossing Cheapside, Bradford St and Digbeth High St. Floodgate St passes diagonally under the viaduct. Beyond the viaduct at top-left can be seen Curzon St Goods Station and the B'ham & Fazeley Canal in the centre.
