Birmingham New Street Station: lnwrbns_str1783
Looking West along the newly built Platform 12 from the
Coventry end of the station whilst a DMU can be seen arriving at Platform 11 on
22nd May 1965. The roof above the platforms will form the floor of the
concourse, booking hall, access road and taxi rank, a design feature that
entombed the station and created what was too many people a friendless,
unwelcome and dirty environment. The light streaming from above illustrates
that the new station is still two years away from completion.
