Yesterday acquired this postcard of the said building in Birmingham. From the photo and the card design it must be pre WW1 and probably pre 1900, so presumably nothing to do with the University. any ideas as to where it is/was (most likely was I'm afraid)

Looks to have been called The Dales before becoming the Chancellor's Hall, and the home of George Dixon. Shown on revised 1938 Map as Chancellor's Hall but on the 1914 as The Dales.

Interesting as the George Dixon site say there are no surviving photos of the Dales.

Interesting. Obviously the design and "look" of the card fooled me as to age.

Looks like the building was demolished and in 1972 Bryant were selling exclusive 4 bed detached at Chancellor’s Hall.

George Dixon was in possession of The Dales from around 1850 when he took out a 99 year lease from Lord Calthorpe.
