Spirit of Place: 1901 Postcard from Birmingham

And of course nothing has changed since then, either in favourable comparison to the capital or in slumminess! That said Inexplicable has a soft spot for the Old Square and this card shows what the houses were demolished to build.


  1. Well, yes, I did rather like the Old Square, but the Newbury's building is quite magnificent.

    I have just googled (Binged, really) the Old Square to remind myself what it looks like now, and it appears to be full of buses!

    1. Well yes, they have rather ended up there. One of these days I'm definitely going to post about Manzoni gardens and what a bus driver did to me there...
