Old photographs which show an unvarnished view of the poverty stricken streets of bleak Edwardian Birmingham (early 1900s).

These photographs were taken at the time when the real Peaky Blinders roamed the streets of Bordesley, Small Heath and Digbeth.

The destruction of New Street and Snow Hill stations in Birmingham should go down as a crime against humanity.

Here are some of the most beautiful buildings of Birmingham that unfortunately aren't with us anymore. Most of the obliteration was caused by city planning department. Something even Luftwaffe could have only dreamt of.

Library of Birmingham, knocked down in the early 1970s and replaced by the infamous brutalist library (which is now gone too).







Snow Hill station terminus, demolished in 1977.







The Grand theatre & King's Hall market, demolished in 1963 and replaced by Martineau Galleries.





Mason College, later became University of Birmingham, knocked down in 1964.


And here in the context with arrows pointing at it.



Market Hall, Digbeth demolished in the 60s as a result of Bullring shopping centre creation.





King Edward's School, New street designed by Charles Barry who would later design House of Parliament, demolished in 1936.



Queens Hotel, above the original New Street Station, demolished in 1964.



The Exchange Building, demolished in 1965, replaced by a ramp to a shopping centre.
