Birrel(l)s sweet shop, City centre


master brummie
Hi All, a question from mom and dad, who are disagreeing on the location of this shop.
Mom says it was in Piccadilly Arcade, off New Street, dad thinks it was in a street further up New Street, towards the Town Hall.
Anyone have any ideas please!

The fact that they had a shop in Lower Temple Street, doesn't mean they didn't have one in Piccadilly Arcade later, let you mom save a little face.
