Birmingham Christmas Quiz.

Phil

Retired Layabout
Here is a little quiz, for those at a loose end over the holiday. Just identify the location, item, person or building. The only clue that I will give is that they are all within Birmingham as it is today.

I will give the answers after Christmas or whenever all the correct answers are given whichever option comes first.

Just give the number of the photo and whatever you know about it.

No. 3 Gas Street Basin (looking away from Broad St). Have painted Gas St basin numerous times, including this view Gas St basin (6).JPG

No. 5 I believe is the drinking fountain and horse trough in Old Birmingham Road, Lickey. It was built in 1906 to commemorate the coronation of Edward VII four years earlier. Note the crown on the top. Dave.

The state of play at the moment stands with 8 questions answered correctly, one incorrect answer, one unanswered. So two answers still to find.

After further looking at my painting and pic No. 3 I can see differences, so I think my answer could well be incorrect. Eric

It seems that we are pretty well stuck on this quiz so I will help a little by telling you we are still looking for answers to questions number 3 & 10. I will give all the answers on New Years day answered or not.

This seems to be in an industrial area, Carol, whereas all the pictures of Titford seem to be more rural, though I don't know that area at all.
