The photograph shows old cottages which stood by the brook at the junction of Factory Road and Piers Road. It forms part of the Warwickshire Photographic Survey and was taken by F. Holloway of Soho Road in 1907. The original picture can be found in Archives and Heritage Service, Floor 6, Birmingham Central Library.
It is one of the images collected for the Digital Handsworth project. This draws together material from Birmingham Libraries and Museums about the history of the Handsworth for a website which went live in 2003.
