Shame the archway was taken down. It framed the clock tower perfectly.

I suppose it was taken down because the buildings became separate and with different owners, well that's my guess.

I'd forgotten that buses used to go down it, it's been that long since it's been pedestrianized,

I'm hoping that one day I'll see my car in one of these photos - anyone else thinking the same?

The junction of Weoley Hill and Witherford Way Selly Oak, another water feature that Birmingham Council have foolishly lost over the years.

Great photographs. In the sepia one, notice the tram lines. Hagley road was a tram route at one time, and I believe for a very short time a "first class " tram was tried out.
