Back Yard, Cradley Heath

The rears of Nos. 21 to 25, Pear Tree Street (now Peartree Lane). The buildings to the left would have probably been wash-houses as there is a mangle to the right of the alleyway. The barrel and the modern dustbin would most likely have served as refuse holders. Only a small portion of the yard has been paved.
