New Futures for Birmingham`s Historic Buildings

The Friday Photo

Posted November 23rd, 2012 by Tracey Thorne with 1 Comment

Suzanne Carter at Birmingham Conservation Trust has come up with a great idea to post a heritage photo each week. Sounds like a great idea; suggestions welcome? Tell me what you would like to see and we will go out and take a photo of it like we did with the Victorian Urinals in Balsall Heath?

This week’s Friday photo is of a  window in the Jewellery Quarter which was part of the old Pickering & Mayell  LTD Reliance Works. The buildings dates back to the 1820’s and was home to famous Silversmiths George Unite and Nathaniel Smith.

    Pickering & Mayall’s warehouse is one of my favourite sights in the JQ and always makes me smile when I see it. I imagine it full of boxes of goodies, slightly dusty but all useful.

    I love walking around JQ and catching sight of other vanished businesses, represented by cast iron post-boxes, ghostly wall paintings or faded door shingles.
