By the middle of the 19th century, the demands to house Birmingham's rapidly expanding industry and workforce swiftly urbanised Nechells. Building in this north-east part of Birmingham was hastily constructed and became substandard. Working-class back to back courtyards with terraced houses were built dominating this area alongside factories, workshops, corner shops and pubs. Two gasworks were constructed in Windsor Street and Nechells Place polluting the air with an offensive odour compounded by the neighboring Saltley gasworks and a power station to the north. Today, fresh air has returned to Nechells. Duel-carriageways now run where shopping centers once thrived. Various redevelopments have replaced the substandard housing with high-rise tower blocks and low-rise housing in landscaped settings. Many modern large and small units now house industry, business and entertainment complexes alongside the old. Through images and text, Changing Nechells captures the considerable changes Nechells has undergone throughout three generations.
