Never been in Birmingham, even though our son now lives there. Clueless as to what building this is but looks a very interesting one and well captured image.

I shall come back later to find out - it has an Arts & Crafts look, and Birmingham was an important centre of activity in the A & C Movement.

Ok time's up. It's The Rest House on Bournville Village Green, not far away from the Cadbury factory. Fashioned on Dunster's Yarn Market in Somerset it was originally opened in 1914 to commemorate the silver wedding of George and Elizabeth Cadbury, and since 1997 has been home to the Bournville Carillon Visitors' Centre and Gift Shop.
Thanks for clicks and comments Smile

Good perspective ....I knew where it was but did not know anything about it.
I only every see it in passing when we have to visit Selly Oak the QE...Hospital.
Just have a look through your portfolio and it's good to see all the great "urban" shots of around the area.
