Victorian buildings in Thorp Street
Victorian buildings in Thorp Street
These buildings appear to have originally been part of the large barracks complex at 17 Thorp Street. Today the one on the left is the office of RSW, a firm of chartered accountants. That on the right is StageSide, a modern restaurant and bar. The name originates from the fact that it is opposite the stage door of Birmingham's famous Hippodrome theatre.

To the left of the accountants is a site, which was at one time occupied by one of Birmingham's famous "courts" - cramped housing which fronted onto a communal courtyard, with various communal facilities. Apparently there were four housing units (for want of a better word) in this court. These were probably numbered 19, 21, 23 & 25 Thorp Street. All Birmingham's courts have been demolished except the one preserved by the National Trust in Inge Street/Hurst Street.
