Warehouse Wednesday - Birmingham engineering works

Brimingham Engineering Works

In Birmingham, 5 minutes walk from Snow Hill Station, and just over the road from The Wonderful World of Trains and Planes display is this building housing an engineering works.

It's a reminder that Brum used to be all about making things. As it is, 5 more minutes stroll puts you in the Jewelery Quarter among dozens of tiny workshops with people working precious stones and expensive metals.

Modellers will like the simple windows (scribed perspex would work for these) with occasional RSJ dividers. Also the massive door (why so tall?) with peeling paint and finally, the weathering beneath the windows
