Town Hall and King Edwards Square, Sutton Coldfield 1928



Library services at Home have (Birmingham’s Home Library Service) got together with some of their visually impaired members to discuss their memories and recollections triggered by the photos from the Britain from Above project. We have also added a few facts and dates for the project.



This is a picture of Sutton Town Hall and King Edwards Square. The large building in the centre is the current Sutton Town Hall consisting of an 1865 structure and a 1906 extension. This was formerly the site of the Royal Hotel.



The oval shaped structure at the bottom centre of the picture are the remains of a railway turn table which was used to turn around engine locomotives when Sutton Coldfield’s railway line only ran as far as Sutton Coldfield.



Below is an audio description of the image. The narrator is Stan Hubbard.
