I've never really noticed how nice that building is,



Shame they knocked down the only other building designed by the men who did the Houses of Parliament and all that, but it's pretty good!

There's some great derelict and unloved buildings around all over Birmingham that are ripe for renovation. How about a 'Buildings Ripe for Renovation' thread?
I think we do actually have a thread like that somewhere. Could maybe do with a revival?

Great photos feltip!

Like the detail on this building.





A lot of Grit, I like the way decades old factories and warehouses still make their way all the way into the city centre.

Yet again, Brum forumers are excelling with their pictures. There are so many hidden treasures in Birmingham! Let's get some of these on the City Talk Streetscape thread.

Blimey, so many quality photos to comment on! Amongst Lovecharlie's:

I've always loved all this art deco on Great Charles Street, very imposing but it certainly is in need of a good scrub


great view: and how much that is going to change over the next few years

Walking along the length of Great Charles Street is pretty amazing, some 70s and 80s stuff, but most of that is actaully ok.

This photo, very 1930s art deco building, but almost edging on 1950's brutalist.
When was this building actually built?
