I can just imagine the interesting streets that were bulldozed to build this. Hopefully its days are numbered and those streets can be put back.

Don't even begin to imagine. It's too painful.


Lost Wolverhampton


History Website

This first building was Wolverhampton Wholesale Markets, which took up most of the plot. The rest was taken up by the open air markets, and the below.


Lost Wolverhampton

The latter building (the Exchange) though was much hated locally at the time of demolition. It looks nice from a distance, but up close it had no real street frontages and was always a flyposted, dirty menace. Might have cleaned up nicely.

Hmm, a bit of a larger box than the traditional TARDIS, that one looks like it would be bigger on the inside.
