OK, so I know this was a randomly started thread, but I didn't want to start a new topic for this & it does relate to Birmingham so....

The Post Office Tower (BT Tower as it became) has turned 50 -

I could see this & the Rotunda from my bedroom window in Solihull  ;D

Reading through the posts I made on this thread I think I was a bit hasty, so I apologise if I offended anyone. 
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

I found this photo, don't know whether anyone is old enough to remember it. Its a photo of the Bull Ring cinema. Does anyone know anything about it or where exactly it was? Ive never heard of a cinema in the Bull Ring.

Thanks Phil. Just a couple of questions did Park Street continue across Digbeth High Street, or is the wording on the caption wrong because I'm getting a bit mixed up here looking at the photo, and when it was converted to a pub do you know the name? Thank you

I go past that building so many times on the bus.  Have often wondered what it was, now I know!

I've just found out more about the building on this site -

Ive straightened out my eyes now and can now see where the cinema was The caption is not wrong it was my eyes. Still would like to know the name of the pub it became if anyone knows. Thank you.
