On the way to a family get-together for my Uncle and Aunt’s wedding anniversary celebrations in Birmingham, Dora P and I decided to use the opportunity to do a quick explore of this former nursing home on the outskirts of Brum.
The Father Hudson’s Society was established by catholic priest George Vincent Hudson in 1902, and a history of the Society can be read here.
Sadly, St. Mary’s was subject to an arson attack earlier this year, and the place has most definitely seen better days – the phrase “polishing a turd” sprang to mind more than once when I was sorting through these photos.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy… look out for my next two posts coming soon which will offer far more interesting and photogenic subject matters!
As always, thanks for looking.
great photos and great discovery!!! I’m totally jelly!!
