Description:A search through directories for the name Kimmel reveals a bewildering variety of addresses. Hyman Kimmel, whose name and trade suggest that he may be Jewish, first appears as a tailor in 1905 at an address given as '75 (back of) Hurst Street', but immediately after World War I he is to be found at 12 Bristol and 44 Bell Barn Lane. By 1925 Harry Kimmel, jun., presumably Hyman's son, is working as a tailor at the Bell Barn Lane address. Subsequently, in the early 1930s, 'Kimmels' are listed in Union Street, after which Hyman turns up at the 21 Essex Street address in the advertisement, while Harry moves to Belgrave Road, and after World War II to Harborne. By 1935 only Harry appears in the directories.
