VICTORIA SQUARE MAIN POST OFFICE.........OPENED INTHE SAME YEAR THAT BIRMINGHAM WAS ELEVATED TO CITY STATUS....1890. THIS WAS MIRACULOUSLY SAVED FROM DEMOLITION BY THE TREMENDOUS EFFORTS OF 'THE VICTORIAN SOCIETY' AGAINST THE CITY COUNCIL'S WISHES. IT BECAME THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE THEN NEWLY FORMED 'LLOYDS TSB BANK' AND AFTERWARDS OTHER CORPORATE OFFICES. Originally the entrances were at the corners of the building but a central window was converted and this is now the main entrance.

THESE WERE THE 'CHRISTCHURCH BUILDINGS' (ALSO KNOWN AS 'GALLOWAY'S CORNER' (Galloway was the Pharmacy located on the ground floor corner between Victoria Square and New St.)). They replaced 'THE CHRISTCHURCH' and its cemetery which was demolished in 1899, some parts of which were relocated to ST AGATHA'S, Stratford Road, Sparkbrook. These 'CHRISTCHURCH BUILDINS' were themselves demolished, area turfed and became a recreation space. This area became the site of the sculptures and water cascades mockingly called 'THE FLOOZIE IN THE JACUZZI', and following many attempts to cure the water leaks, the cascade were switched off and an abundance of various plants were installed giving an appearance terraced gardens.

The Birmingham Canal Navigations Co. Old Wharf. This was the second terminal basin built when business outgrew the original site at Newhall Street. These twin basins were accessed via an archway off the north eastern corner of Gas Street Basin.
