Roy


A before map of the location of Corporation Street in 1875 and an after map of when of was opened in 1905. By the way the statue in the image was Sir Thomas Attwood a leading Birmingham politican and reformer. The statue was moved to Calthorpe Park in 1925 and moved again in 1974 to Larches Green Sparkbrook where it stood until 2008 when it was moved to storage because it was totally wrecked and covered in graffiti.

An early image of New Street from Worcester Street that looks to be at the end of the 19th century in the pre motorised era as the only transport I can see is horse or man powered.
