They did offer the option of delivery, as it is unreasonable to expect people to be able to just stroll out with a fridge-freezer.

Where are deliveries made from, is it from the car park under Selfridges?

I can't think of anywhere else where goods would be delivered or sent from.

The Pavilions has a side road near these stairs / ramps up to the Bullring

i'm pretty sure Bullring has two goods entrances, one (which is the main one to the stores) by the selfridges carpark entrance and the other under the tunnel by new street station

There's something about that last view that looks horribly cluttered. It's a poorly gelled, cramped mess of styles which look great individually but not so great together. Hopefully the new scheme will address all that.

Is that from the bridge?

I tried getting a few shots of it yesterday evening, but if you walk past it, it didn't look it up, only from a distance away.

That plaque in the last photo is very odd. How the hell can a meteorite that fell to earth 500 years ago find its way back into space and then fall back down?

Unless it's more cryptic....
