New Futures for Birmingham`s Historic Buildings

Friday Photo- The Old Fire Station

Posted November 11th, 2016 by Anne-Marie Hayes with No Comments

Built in 1908, this week’s Friday photo is a beautiful grade II listed red brick building that is sure to catch your eye. Located on Albion Street and literally over the road from the Pig and Tail (formerly the George and Dragon Pub), the building is now a children’s nursery but it was once, not surprisingly a fire station as its name suggests. It still has the Birmingham motto ‘Forward’ proudly adorning it’s red facade and sits within Dayus Square, newly named after the eponymous local writer Kathleen Dayus.
