Snow Hill Station facade (unknown date). Was'nt it magnificent?

Mike this could run as there are hundreds of postcards of Birmingham.

Thank you everybody for some lovely pictures. I can remember quite a few of the scenes. For example the colour pic of the Bull Ring must have been late 1958 or early 1959, as you can see Bryant's the contractors had started to remnove Nelson's statue to a terrible site in Moor Street. I am ashamed to say I did the drawings for setting out the new site, and the new plinth base, in mid-1958.
The picture of a 'company' tramcar at the side of Snow Hill station is quite familiar to me, as I bought a sepia copy of that postcard in Woolworth's, Lozells Road in 1949 or 1950, and still have it.
Keep the pics rolling!

Another familiar view from the sixties, Smallbrook Ringway.

Another familiar view, long replaced by that horrible ramp. Stephenson Place at the bottom right of the postcard, looking up Corporation St.

The other end of Corporation Street c.1940s. Note the odd caption - the Fire Station is nowhere to be seen.
