I have had the one of my dad for a few years now, but the one of my grandmother was a recent find.

A rather special photo of the number 50 bus terminus in Albert Street in the City in the early 60's. You might ask "what is special about it?" and I would reply "Because it has managed to capture an image of my grandmother on a shopping trip to town".  She is the lady in the large check coat crossing the road on the right of the photo.

Wow   :)

Broad Street, Hall of Memory & Peace Garden before they started to mess about with it.

The other end of the Peace Garden with the Colonnade which was later moved to make way for the NEC

Colmore Row
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

It looked lovely then. I really wish they hadn't started messing with it to be honest, and I'm not sure that they'll ever stop messing with it.
