Summary Discover 366 gruesome tales from Birmingham's past. With appalling accidents, frightful crimes, and extraordinary deaths, there is a tale to surprise even the most hardened reader. Featured here is the man who deliberately swallowed his wooden walking stick, a 19th-century horse meat scandal, a drunken dispute that led to a man being stabbed in the eye with a table fork, and the lightning storm which hit a fog-signaling factory, setting off 43,000 explosions. Here are true accounts of fires, catastrophes, murders, and executions. If you have ever wondered what nasty goings-on occurred in the Birmingham of yesteryear, then this is the book for you.
