There were also disturbances in Birmingham, West Midlands, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton.
Mr. William James, of West Bromwich, belonged to the active class of projectors.
He first occupied a house on the left-hand side of the West Bromwich road, at Handsworth.
These works, in which plate and every kind of crown glass is made, are situated at West Bromwich.
West Bromwich has rapidly risen to importance from the rich iron and coal mines which abound in its vicinity.
