One of the suffragette actions which was explored by our group was the burning of Northfield Library in 1914.
The building was set fire to at night, and the building and contents were destroyed. A book by Christabel Pankhurst was left at the site, along with a note reading, ‘To start your new library’.
You can read all the details in these press cuttings, found by our group in the records of Birmingham Fire Service.
