      Birmingham Noir: A Nighttime Walking Tour of Notorious Downtown Historic

      October 29 and October 30
      5:45 p.m.
      Birmingham Public Library

      Fallen Women

      Just as the afternoon sun slips out of the downtown sky, like a platinum
      blond sliding into a black party dress, the night owls will gather at
      the library.

      Get ready for Halloween by putting on your walking shoes and joining
      Birmingham Public Library Archivist Jim Baggett for the fourth annual
      Birmingham Noir tour of some of the Magic City's infamous historic
      sites. Visit the location of Birmingham's most famous brothel,
      spectacular 19th century murders, political intrigues, and the scandal
      that nearly destroyed Bull Connor's career.

      Admission is free but reservations are required. Each tour is limited to
      25 people and spaces always fill quickly.

      These 90 minute tours begin and end in the atrium of the downtown
      Birmingham Public Library. Free parking is available in the library lot
      on the corner of Twenty-second Street and Park Place.

      To make reservations contact:

      Jim Baggett, Head
      Department of Archives and Manuscripts
      Birmingham Public Library
      2100 Park Place, Birmingham, AL 35203
