There was a red light district at the back of Rackhams.
The Rackhams store in the city centre has long sported the tale that there was a red light district at the back of it, before the area was pedestrianised.
'She'll be round the back of Rackhams' could be said of someone who was thought of as promiscuous. Women might joke 'I'll be round the back of Rackhams', if they felt then need to earn some extra money to pay the bills, and prostitution was the preferred method!
If seems to be a universally accepted fact that there did in fact used to be a 'red light' area behind the old store, but no one it seems wants to come forward and admit it! A Birmingham brewery even names one of its real ales 'Bhacker Ackhams' after the location.
These days the area has changed and Rackham is now a House Of Fraser store. Perhaps it's just as well. However if you want the company of a gorgeous woman all you've got to do is give us a call at Birmingham Escorts Agency!
