This looks to be an early 1950's view of the Bull Ring.

The Bull Ring in 1957 looking up toward the High Street for a change. In 1957 the Big Top site on the corner of New Street & High Street couldn't have been opened all that long.

Looking across the Ringway at what was supposed to be the valet car parking area for the Bull Ring Centre, but it didn't quite work out the way it was supposed to so it was never used.

Did the space just stay empty?

It might have just been used for storage, but I never heard of it being used as a car park after they realised it was never going to work. I think it took much too long for people to retrieve their cars and long queues developed. I think it was doomed from the start as it was never a good idea as you can see from this film clip. The car park section start t 00.38 on the second counter at the bottom of the clip.
