Former Ahronsberg Brothers Factory

Ahronsberg Brothers: Former facility in Summer Hill Road, Birmingham.

Former facility in Summer Hill Road, Birmingham.

The Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham has a large collection of former factories. This one was for the Ahronsberg Brothers, Goldsmiths and Jewellers.The brothers, Judah, Albert & Lionel, originally set up round the corner in Albion Street. The company dates back to 1891. By 1916, they had changed their name to Albury Brothers, so this building in Summer Hill Road must predate that change.

Sadly, this fine building is now, like many others in the area, derelict.
