Today’s Friday Photo is of a building you have probably walked past and even possibly frequented. It may also look like a recent Friday Photo I shared back in February, which was of the Midland Bank. Well this building actually stands opposite, on Waterloo Street and does strike a similar resemblance. Formally the National Provincial Bank of England and now a popular bar called the Lost and Found, this Grade II-star listed building was built between 1869-1870 by local Castle Bromwich architect, John Gibson. If you look very closely, you will see a sculpture on the rooftop with an early Birmingham coat of arms sandwiched in between- a detail that is mostly likely often missed. Gibson was a prolific architect and designed many notable buildings in Birmingham and also across Britain, and he even famously designed the lay-out of Canon Hill Park, setting a standard for the design of public parks in England. If you walk past this building, and others in the city, remember to look up! You never know what might catch your eye!
