In 1900 no 125, which is marked as part of the white building halfway along the Gt Hampton St frontage was T Jerome & Co, button manufacturers, but the corner (at 126) is listed as Isreal Greenberg & co, wholesale jewellers. But the map of the 1880s shows that the corner was the Birmingham Joint Stock Bank, and the Jerome button factory would have been on the site of the part of the Empire building on Gt Hampton St away from the corner
