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  :)
