The Hamstead Colliery produced coal from the South Staffordshire 'Thick' coal seam between 1878 and 1965.

Looking down New Street from the Town Hall, Christ Church still standing.
The new Post Office building has replaced Corbett's Temperance Hotel on the right.

Paradise Street 1899.

Snow is being cleared. The photo was taken around the time Christ Church was being demolished. You can see the spire is gone. Notice the old style Birmingham lampposts.

View from James Watt Point, one of four high rise blocks built close together in Aston, near to where Spaghetti Junction would be completed in May 1972. The view is looking east over Aston train station, the Lichfield Road area and Windsor Street Gas Works. Aston Hall Road is in the foreground.
There were farms here in 1835.

Photo taken by Phyllis Nicklin.

Benacre Street, Highgate - not far from Bristol Street.

Jimdo



Some back-to-back housing with children gathered outside.

Pinterest



Small Heath. More back-to-back housing. You rarely see a curved old street in Birmingham so this must have been a rarity.

Cuckoo Road again but this time classed as Aston instead of Nechells.

The Queen's Hotel in 1920. It had been greatly extended since it was built in 1854.

Children race up a slum clearance zone in Ladywood, 1968.

A misty morning in the cleared All Saints area of Birmingham. The area name is no longer used and I would guess that the location is somewhere around where Hockley, Handsworth and Winson Green meet.

Ann Street, believed to be in 1867. At this time, Joseph Chamberlain's plans for The Birmingham Council House would likely have been on the drawing board.

BirminghamPost/TheChangingFaceOfBirmingham



Between 1904-53, 825 trams operated on the streets of Birmingham at any one time. This photo, of a No 70 tram pulling up outside the Bell Hotel in Northfield in 1952, comes from Eric Armstrong's 'Seeing Birmingham By Tram' collection. The photo was taken on the last day that trams ran through Northfield.
