This property on Prince Consort Rd was a 'Doss House' ie cheap lodgings. Men would pay a penny or two to sleep indoors rather than outside somewhere. They slept hanging over ropes standing up.

This area was known locally as 'The Bauxite'. Not a lot is recorded about this 'British Aluminium Co' apart from it produced Aluminium Hydroxide from the ore known as 'Bauxite'. A lot of waste known as red mud was a by-product of the process & it was dumped on the site producing hillocks/mounds of this red mud. It was fenced off to keep people off it.
