Birmingham New Street Station: lnwrbns_str426
View of the layout of the original 1854 station showing the
Queen's hotel at the bottom and Great Queen's Street at the top. This view
shows why Birmingham's new station was ultimately named after New Street.
Although Great Queen Street provided the better access, the location of the
Queen's Hotel off New Street via Station Approach conveyed the impression that
this entrance was the most prestigious. C1854
