hi everyone, and what a forum, since ive found it ,ive spent hours reading and looking thru the old pictures.
anyway back to the bullring, i currently work on a fish stall in the new indoor bull ring market and i also worked in the old bull ring market and yes most of the old chracters have died or the council have put a stop on us shouting or having a banter, looking thru the post yes the council are charging us silly rents for the stalls and at lot of stall holders are strugling , we need more young people to start using the markets like i did when i was young with my mom. i am currently putting together a website to try and get the market noticed on the web ( i have put this web site as a link if thats ok) the council are doing nothing to help us promote the market as its all down to the stall holders. i am looking to put a history page on the site and am looking for any old pictures of the old indoor bullring markets (dry goods or fish/meat side) and comments that people who like to post. back to the markets we need more people to support us, where can you get fresh chicken fillet not pumped up like supermarkets delivered and chopped that day for an average of 5kg compared to supermarket value chicken at about 6.50kg (containing who knows what).
the address is www.indoorbullringmarket.co.uk its a bit basic at the moe , but im updating it all the time and we needed something quick.

How do I contact you directly? I wanted to ask about use of your photos for research I'm conducting about the King Kong statue you mention in this thread on page 2. Is it possible to talk to you about this via email?

Mine is sushimonsters at gmail dot com, if you could get in touch that would be great.

Apologies for posting this here, I am new to the forum.

Many thanks.

Phil

I remember when the whale came to Birmingham.  One of the places it was exhibited was Sherlock Street on waste land.
They erected a tent and inside was this shabby looking whale, you were charged a small entrance fee and filed past.  I was about 10 or so and remember thinking that his teeth didn't look real.
