Grand Central Opening

Grand Central 1854. (This was not the blueprint for today’s Grand Central!)

Grand Central has finally opened! I’m sure you’ll  be aware by now that New Street Station has had a make over and whilst we missed the opportunity to take a photo of the new building (despite coming through there every day on our way to work…….) we thought instead some images of the station over the years would be a nice way to commemorate the opening.

Moving forward, a more recognisable New Street Station c.1960s.

Last but not least, the entrance that will be familiar to so many of us.

Why not go along and have a look to see how the station has changed!

 

Please also remember that we are reviewing how we deliver services and we want to consult with our users to get your views on the opening hours of the Wolfson Centre for Archival Research. Please visit https://theironroom.wordpress.com/2015/09/12/birmingham-archives-heritage-photography-public-consultation/  for details of the consultation and how you can have your say.
