Birmingham - We Lived Back to Back - The Real Story

BRAND NEW BOOK

by

Mac Joseph and Ted Rudge

BACK-TO-BACKS were once the most common form of housing in England, home to the majority of working people in Victorian cities, but they have now almost entirely vanished from our townscape.

Birmingham: We Lived Back to Back is a collection of the personal stories of people who grew up in these infamous houses. For some, it was a harsh life, cramped and conducive to sickness, yet ‘back-ofs’ were also a hub of life-long friendships, close-knit families, and community spirit. This examination will come as a revelation to modern generations:  What was it like to live in a house with one bedroom and no running water? How did eleven families share two toilets? The rise and fall of the back-to-back provides a sobering insight into an essential but often overlooked aspect of Britain’s social and urban history
