Birmingham city with vision

the cedar tree at the Birmingham end of Bosworth Drive sufferd first the tree surgeons and then the last storms


I got off the 97 bus one stop early at Digbeth by Birmingham Digbeth Coach Station in order to snap the ROTUNDA
I admire the person who built this tower for the pride he had in his business

Digbeth Institute is now a 2000 capacity music venue in the High Street, Digbeth, Birmingham,



get a short back and side and a shave at the coach station

in the window this model of the four chair barbers shop is all that will be left.
