Birmingham was known as the “city of a thousand trades” as it was a world leader in the manufacturing items like buckles, guns, jewlery and pens.
The history of Birmingham dates back 10,500 years ago with habitation along the valley of the river Rea. The Doomsday Book of 1086, records Birmingham having 9 houses valued at £1. However in 1166 Peter de Birmingham was granted the rights to hold a weekly market, transforming the prospects of the small settlement. The market was located around St.Martin’s church, one of the oldest buildings in Birmingham. The markets still exist in the same place over 800 years later.
In the 16th century Birmingham gradually transformed from a market town into a major industrial centre. With the benefit of it’s location in the centre of the country, road links and natural resources, the area drew industries such as cutlery, weapons and guns.
In the 18th century, Birmingham had become a major European centre for metalworking, producing buckles, buttons and small metal fabrications. The industry was dominated by the manufacturers Matthew Boulton and JohnTaylor. Boulton, along with James Watt and Erasmus Darwin founded the Lunar Society, recognised worldwide for innovative and pioneering ideas in science, arts, philosophy and commerce. The Lunar Society got its name because it gathered during the full moon at Soho House , which is today a museum.
This period saw a great expansion of the canal network into Birmingham. The canals allowed quick and easy transport of raw materials and finished goods, giving Birmingham a major competitive edge over other rival manufacturing areas. Birmingham quickly became a worldwide “powerhouse” of manufacturing and invention, becoming “the City of a Thousand Trades’ and the “Toyshop of Europe”.
In 1850, Ralph Heaton set up the Birmingham mint to strike coins and medals. In1853, owing to a lack of capacity at the Royal Mint in London, the Birmingham mint won it’s first contract to strike British coins. In two years the mint struck over 500 tons of copper. During their peak the Birmingham mint was striking around 1100,000 coins per day.
Birmingham was also a major manufacturer of steel pen nibs, claiming that 75% of everything written in the world at the time was written with a pen made in Birmingham.
Today, over 40% of the UK’s hand made jewelry products are made in Birmigham’s world famous Jewelry Quarter.
The rapid economic growth of the 19th century led to massive growth in the city’s population. The mid 19th century saw the development of Back to Back housing as aresponse to the rapidly increasing population. Economic growth brought great propserity a small number of people, but many people saw little benefit. The increase in population saw housing conditions fall, with poor education and health worstening during the Industrial Revolution. Thankfully there were people who set out to make changes. Reform had started in 1799 when Dr John Ash, supported by wealthy individuals such as Matthew Boulton, built a the Birmingham free hospital.
In the late 19th century, lead by Joseph Chamberlain, Birmingham became an international leader in social reform. Over half of the population of Birmingham was dependant on well sewage polluted well water. In 1876, through compulsory purchase of the city’s water works, Chamberlain created the Birmingham Corporation Water Department. During his tenure clean water and gas was made available to more people, public schools, municipal swimming pools and museums were built and major slum cleanance undertaken.
In 1893, George Cadbury bought 120 acres of land close to his Bournville chocolate works and built at his own expense a village to ‘alleviate the evils of modern more cramped living conditions’. By 1900, the estate included 313 cottages and houses set on 330 acres
In the 20th century Birmingham developed new industries to meet changing demands for electrical goods and car manufacturing. Birmingham also continued as a major munitions manufacturer to meet the demands of the First and Second World Wars. As important munitions centre, Birmingham was bombed heavily during the second world war, resulting in 2,214 people in the city dying.
The 1950’s saw a post war boom, causing a huge growth in employment in the engineering and motor industries that could not be met from the UK population. So new communities from the Indian sub-continent and the Carribean came to make Bmingham their home .
Since the worldwide economic upheavals of the 1970’s and 1980’s Birmingham has shifted its focus from manufacturing to a service based economy, benefiting from being the regional capital and centre for employment and commerce. Innovative new industries are rapidly making Birmingham their home, from graphic designers to computer game programmers, supported by Birmingham’s world-renowned universities and colleges.
