Hi Bob, I hope you chained your bike to the railings of ASDA car park while taking this picture!

Hi Bob,

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.

All the best Peter

A fine picture of one of only two listed structures in Brownhills - the other being the Aqueduct carrying the Anglesey Branch over the same line.

Welcome to Panoramio.

Nice composition, and great mood.

Hi Bob

In the last few days there have been some beautiful skies, I have noticed them but not been able to picture them. This one needs no alteration!

Thanks Peter
