Birmingham's Victorian heritage is still surprisingly well preserved, despite much demolition during the twentieth century, and major redevelopment in the last few months and years. In this book Roy Thornton looks at a selection of the city's Victorian architecture, some of the lost buildings as well as the survivors to illustrate the range of building that took place during Birmingham's most prosperous decades. A wide range of old and new photographs, maps, plans, drawings and paintings are also included. Public buildings, churches, houses, industrial buildings, schools and hospitals are all discussed, together with a special study of Corporation Street - arguably the city centre's best-preserved Victorian thoroughfare."Victorian Buildings of Birmingham" will appeal to anyone interested in the history of Britain's second city.
