Reminds me of this scary one that I came across...
"In 1987, twelve different horse sculptures by Kevin Atherton, titled Iron Horse, were erected between New Street station and Wolverhampton. One stands on a platform at New Street."
I never managed to actually see all 12!
All the best Peter

What kind of establishment is this Bob, a former workhouse?
Four and a half thousand mile to the West is the house in New Orleans!
He's a big lad Bob!
Reminds me of this friendly fellow I met in Dirtyfoot Lane

Hi Bob, I hope you chained your bike to the railings of ASDA car park while taking this picture!
As a matter of interest I looked in the Newspaper Archive and noticed that the Walsall Anarchist Plot was mentioned several times in the birmingham Daily post from January 1892 for many months.
On Jan 30 1892 Deakin was charged at Walsall but in the above biography it says..."on his way to the anarchist Autonomie Club in Fitzrovia, by Inspector Melville of the Special Branch and charged with having been unlawfully in the possession of a cigar-box containing a bottle of white fluid, and not being able to give a satisfactory account of how he had obtained it. The fluid was chloroform."
Apparently this charge could not be made outside the metropolis, and it was usually made against receivers of stolen goods. He was acquitted of this charge, but he had been lured into a confession by the London Detective.
