28-29 Horsefair, Birmingham
A florid trio of shops built in 1899 by Ballard & Mantel for a grocer, Simeon Theodore King. The architects pulled out several stops. It was an Indian restaurant, the Koh-I-Noor, but not any longer it seems.

Bankers are gone from Bristol Street - Birmingham
This building at the junction of Bristol Street and Essex Street was built in 1890 by Alfred T Greening. The ground floor stonework was added in 1924 to the design of Peacock & Bewlay. The building was at one time I assume the branch of a bank. The stone band above the ground floor windows shows traces of fixings which appear to spell out 'Barclays Bank', I could be wrong on this. These days the only apparent inhabitants of the building are pigeons which fly in and out of the broken windows - it must make fine shelter for them the year round. Time photo taken 11.40 am BST (British Summer Time).

Silent sentinels from the City's past - Birmingham
Taken from the south-western end of Inge Street where it joins Essex Street, this photo shows the supposed former bank building, the subject of 'Bankers are gone from Bristol Street' and its neighbour, built at the same time I assume. Both buildings show tiled decoration on their facades - slightly closer views in the following photos. This building, like its neighbour, makes a comfortable home for a flock of pigeons. Time photo taken 11.38 pm BST (British Summer Time). Image]

Decoration from Victorian days - Birmingham
A closer look at the facade of the building featured in 'Bankers are gone from Bristol Street'. I have not yet found out whether Alfred T Greening was the builder or architect of these pair of buildings in Essex Street but they are an example of how buildings were adorned in the days of our Victorian forebears.

A few embattled older survivors. The spired corner building was the White Lion pub, by James & Lister Lea, 1896, for Davenports. Grade II listed. JLL was also responsible for the gabled building, 1898-99, one quarter of which has been lost. The building sandwiched between is late C18th.
