Joseph Chamberlain – Man, Politician and Icon

July 2014 is the centenary of the death of Joseph Chamberlain – the iconic mayor of Birmingham who shaped much of the city we know today.

Chamberlain dominated the city’s political life for more than three decades and by the 1890s Birmingham was known as “the best governed city in the world.”
