Friday Photo: The Industrial Gallery
Todays Friday photo is of the balcony and roof space in the Industrial Gallery room at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (built 1885). The exposed ironwork is beautiful to look at and the detail makes the building itself an example of fine art. Of particular interest are the ornate gas lights hanging above the gallery, which you can see to the left of the picture. These also feature in the neighboring ‘long gallery’, which is now the Edwardian Tea Room (incidentally newly refurbished and a lovely place for a cream tea!). There are more details about the gallery and in particular the wonderful gas lamps on the BMAG blog here

I could get used to having cream teas in beautiful surroundings.
