The Victoria (1), 48 John Bright Street
Tucked away on the corner where Station Street becomes John Bright Street, is this Victorian gem, a Victorian theatre pub, next to the Alexandra Theatre. It attracts a wide variety of customers, including actors, staff and patrons of the theatre. As well as a wide variety of food, it offers an amazing range of entertainment through the week. There are and were several other pubs in Birmingham with Victoria in their name. It was a very popular name for pubs in the Victorian era. Image Image Image

The Victoria (4) - detail, 48 John Bright Street
Amazing decoration on this Victorian theatre pub, which is still going strong. I'm not sure whether there is still a door in use behind the metalwork, but this certainly looks very attractive. John Bright Street was named after the well-known radical, who was elected as a Member of Parliament for Birmingham in 1858. He held this seat for over thirty years. He was a leading proponent for parliamentary reform, to make the representation more democratic, which led to the Reform Act of 1867. For more information and photos, please see:- Image

71-79 John Bright Street, Birmingham
Built as the Skin Hospital in 1887 by James & Lister Lea. An original Queen Anne design with the facade repeatedly stepping back and an unusual cupola. Grade II listed. The hospital services relocated in the 1980s, and while it looks in reasonable condition it's not clear whether this building is currently used for anything.

Edward VII Pillarbox on Station Street
Looking down to New Street Station and beyond to the newly refurbished Rotunda. Quiet now but once this would have been one of the busier thoroughfares in the city.

Telephone exchange, Hill Street, Birmingham
Impressively forbidding like a lot of 1960s/1970s exchanges. Behind is the back of the Holloway Circus Tower.
