Scala House, Smallbrook Queensway, Birmingham
Part of the development of the Inner Ring Road, this originally housed a cinema and offices. By James Roberts, 1962-64. Apparently the cinema is still buried inside somewhere but has been closed for some years.

Scarlets (formerly The White Lion), 34 Horse Fair
Scarlets describes itself as a restaurant, night club and bar. Previously the Radius Bar & Club was here. Going back through time, this building has also been The White Lion pub and The Red Lion pub. The position is complicated, and the following information is based on a post by someone called Mike on the very interesting Birmingham History Forum. From the late 1800's up to 1899, number 34 Horse Fair was The Red Lion pub. Next door, round the corner at 27 Thorp Street, was another pub called The White Lion. In about 1900, the two pubs seem to have been amalgamated, which no doubt involved some building alterations. The enlarged and combined pub took the name The White Lion, and the address was 34 Horse Fair, no doubt because the main entrance was on that street. After 1900, the address 27 Thorp Street disappears from the records, though what had been that building was of course now part of 34 Horse Fair. Image

Horse Fair leading to Bristol Street
Horse Fair connects Holloway Circus - a roundabout of the 1960s Birmingham ring road - to Bristol Street, which leads into Bristol Road. Mosaic murals in the pedestrian underpass of Holloway Circus depict the horse market which took place here in the 19th century. The photo is taken from outside Scala House looking towards Clydesdale Tower, one of the Sentinels - see their Wikipedia page here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sentinels .

The pagoda was built around ten years ago to mark the entrance to the Chinese Quarter. It is now dwarfed by the Radisson Hotel. The maintenance team are clambering up the right hand side of the hotel building.
