The New Birmingham c. 1964
|St Martin's Circus Ringway
I had considered the two-tier shops that fronted on to the open market
in the Bull Ring to be part of the Bull Ring
but, when you think about it, they were actually seperate
from the shopping centre. Also, they were completed before the
Bull Ring Centre as the 1963 picture, below, indicates. This was
latterly the site of the Jolly Fryer chip shop, the relocated statue of
Nelson and the merry-go-round to entertain the kids. By 2014, the
site of these shops had been lost inside the Bullring east mall.
