Gripped by the Nutts

Down Poplar Road in King’s Heath is the sewing machine shop of Frank L Nutt:

And if you travel down to near Star City you see signs for the sewing machine shop of one S Nutt:

And I’ve been told of Walsall’s DC Nutt and Sutton’s M Nutt.

It’s fascinating to me, none of the shops or website refer to any of the others…are we dealing with a schism of Dassler brothers proportions (you’ll remember that Adi Dassler set up adidas, his brother Rudolph: Puma) ?

Of course we could just ask them, but it’s more fun to speculate: do you know any more Nutts? Have you been assaulted by one of them?

    Intriguing. Do you think they are in any way related to  Nutters Fastenings in Nechells?
