Alcester Street, Highgate
Alcester Street, Highgate
Highgate Park is just out of shot to the right with the Paragon Hotel straight ahead. This is now a smart hotel, but was originally opened in 1903 as a lodging house, called Rowton House, offering relatively decent accommodation predominantly for Irish labourers. S. Lilley & Sons Ltd on the left is a long-established family firm specialising in brass lampholders and lighting accessories - keeping Birmingham's reputation for metal bashing alive.
