Historical Blue Plaque for Ark Tindal

Balsall Heath has got its first blue plaque in memory of John Bowen, a builder born in the mid-nineteenth century, who started out as a farm labourer and ended-up creating some of Birmingham’s best-known buildings, including the iconic Victoria Law Courts.

Birmingham Civic Society unveiled the plaque to Alderman John Bowen at the Balsall Church Centre in Mary Street. It will be later be put up at Ark Tindal Academy in Tindal Street, as John Bowen built the school and for a time lived in Tindal Street. Several pupils were invited along to this historic event.

The erection of the plaque coincides with the publication of a book on Mr Bowen his great-grandson, retired Birmingham solicitor Anthony Collins.
