Birmingham New Street Station Through Time Summary

Birmingham New Street Station Through Time by Mark Norton

New Street Station was once voted one of the country's most hated buildings. To many, it is a 1960s monstrosity. Those with a longer memory, however, will recall the grand old station that dated back to 1854, a station with a rich and fascinating history. Built by the London & North Western Railway, it had the largest arched single-span roof in the world and upon opening was described as Grand Central Station, Birmingham. Now, in the twenty-first century, New Street is once again undergoing a transformation. It is hoped that this will restore its place in the heart of both Birmingham residents and travellers passing through. New Street Station Through Time brings to life the history of this Birmingham landmark and previews the exciting vision of the station's future as it takes the reader on a journey covering 175 years.
