Take a visual journey back to 1960s Birmingham to witness the much-loved Bull Ring, the grand city centre buildings that were demolished to make way for the modern’ city and the streets and courts that were swept away to be replaced by urban villages that have already proved unsuccessful. Views of the current city provide a dramatic example of how much changed. Was it for the better or for the worse? Make up your own mind! Mark Norton, author of Birmingham Past & Present: In My Father's Footsteps, presents many previously unpublished pictures alongside his own colour photographs of the twenty-first century city. Thoughtful and detailed captions provide an insight into the ever-changing City of Birmingham.
