Judith,Architecture went out of the window in Bham in the late 50s.Ilove it but hate some of the Monstrositys they now call beautiful buildings .
It's not just the visual aspect either.  Some of the buildings don't last too long structurally wise either (or else look horrendous quickly after they've been subjected to a bit of rain & air pollution).  It's not like in the Victorian era when things were almost over engineered and built to last - and made to be aesthetically pleasing.

The station buildings that are proposed for this route look a lot like the one at Longbridge (which is also scheduled for a refurbishment).  They certainly aren't individualistic buildings intended to fit in with what's around them.

Do you see the third photo down dated 1908 showing the wooden built bridge that Woodbridge Road gets it's name from.

Ah, I did see it but didn't know where that was where the name came from.  I do enjoy finding out these things  :)

Moseley College for a Ladies

Phil, this post might be better off in the 'MOSELEY' thread, as Moseley College stood at the south-west corner of the Yardley Wood Road / Wake Green Road junction.     However, as I went to Moseley Grammar School in the 50's and 60's (about a quarter-of-a-mile up the road) I can reminisce a little with JOANIDA about this little-mentioned college.     
 
I used to admire your successors on a regular basis on my way to and from school (and I wasn't the only one! ;D )   -   were your school colours dark blue and yellow (or was that Moseley School of Art)?     I never knew any of the girls who went there, unfortunately, and I think yours is the first-ever query I've ever seen on the 'net concerning the college.      It always seemed to be a thriving institution, packed with pupils, and I was very surprised when it closed down.     I can't remember what the school buildings looked like so I've no idea if they're still there today.     Sorry I can't be of more help. :-[

I went to Moseley College from 1959-1961. Absolutely brilliant school. Only person I remember is a girl called Mary Atkinson !
