The New Birmingham
Crooke & Riley/Levi's
This building was constructed for Crooke and Riley Ltd., a jewellers, goldsmiths and pawn brokers and was completed in early 1962. Fifty years later the shop was occupied by Levi's.
Crooke & Riley were based in the central building to the right of Hiltons, seen above in 1963.

Okay - I admit I photographed the wrong building... Crooke and Riley were in the Levi's shop on the right. I'll get a new picture next time I'm in the city centre!
