This week they have been celebrating VE Day so we were issued with ration books so we could get our sweet ration from the shop ( see previous post) and a cup of tea and a biscuit. We even got to visit the coal cellar which was used as an air raid shelter, I don't think I would have wanted to be down there for long.
This is how the National Trust describe the buildings:
Ration book and ID card
- Birmingham's last surviving court of back to back housing
- Story is told through the experiences of the people who lived and worked here
- Covers four different periods, from 1840 to 1977
- Design of each interior reflects the varied cultures, religions and professions of the families who made their homes here
