Paragon Hotel, or Rowton Hotel, must be one of the most underrated and shamefully forgotten buildings in the city. It desperately needs to be part of the city centre, with Highgate Park right next to it the amount of wasted potential almost made me cried when I was there yesterday.

Yes if the building immediately opposite The Rowton and the plain warehouse buildings down the left hand side of Moseley St were demolished, then Highgate Park could continue all the way down to Smithfield leaving a lovely green view back up the hill to the classic terracotta hotel.

Being left to rot and she still looks a fine looking tower, just needs some TLC

This post from demtingzdere over on the thread for Onyx interested me. Does anyone have a picture of the skyline that could be used to head the Wikipedia page?

Currently this is the image at the top of the page


Some fresh, sharp images of the city would be a nice update to the page, and would look good to other people taking an interest in Birmingham. Obviously this is of minimal importance, but maybe we could collectively decide on some images that show the beauty of Brum to update the page with.

These are the images currently repping the city on Wiki. (On a side note, looking at the wiki pages of the other large cities in the UK, we are slacking! )



Apart from an up-to-date picture of the skyline, perhaps something like the new Centenary Square and its surroundings could replace the photo of the LoB, the image of St Philips could be updated to one of the cathedral with the 103 Colmore row core behind, the photo of St Martins & the Bullring could go for a new cityscape, like the emerging Broad St skyline. Or any other suggestions!

If anyone wants any of their photos to go on the wiki page, post them as a reply to this and we can decide which ones go on, then I'll update the Wikipedia page to have them on!
