Named after the city of Birmingham, England, which is known as a manufacturing city, Birmingham, Alabama, was founded in 1871 by real estate investors. Serviced by the Alabama & Chattanooga and the South & North Railroads, Birmingham, Alabama was itself a manufacturing city, and became known for its iron and steel works.
It is the only place in the world where the three major components of steel can be found so close together, whereas in other locations iron ore, coal, and limestone must be carried some distance to be brought together. Steel manufacturing caused the economy of the city to accelerate rapidly, leading to great growth.
While there are many cities in Alabama, Birmingham is the largest with almost 250,000 people living in the city itself, with a further 750,000 in the Birmingham-Hoover Metropolitan area. In addition to a proliferation of people, Birmingham is home to five Fortune 1000 companies and a Fortune 500 company. This alone attracts more people to the city, and the cheapest way to ship a car to Birmingham is by choosing the best car shipping company.
Door to door transport is possible when you choose from multiple car shipping quotes, and the price may be lower than you imagine.
The city was part of the Reconstruction plan started under the Lincoln administration not long after the end of the U.S. Civil War, and became the site of multiple developments in areas as diverse as banking, biotechnology, and medicine.
Even with great growth, the city suffered during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Farm workers left to find work in other cities, and a reduction in mining caused problems for steel production.
However, that wasn’t the end of the story as through several key New Deal programs as set out by President Franklin D Roosevelt, Birmingham, Alabama was boosted by cultural projects and beautification initiatives.
During the 1950s and 1960s, Birmingham was the center of the eponymous Birmingham Civil Rights Movement. This will be remembered for, among many other reasons, Martin Luther King, Jr. launching his campaign to end racial segregation.
Birmingham continues to thrive to this day and many people choose to live and work in and around the city as it has much to offer. Car shipping to Birmingham means that you can have your vehicle available to use whenever you need it.
