Have you ever stopped to think what a decade the thirties was for architectural exits and entrances? A great many "stately homes" (Granges, Halls, Houses, etc.) disappeared and a whole host of "palaces" (of the picture variety) made their debut. Despite the depression and, almost as if in obstinate anticipation of today's informal ways, people went out of their way to dress up to relax - if you want to see a wonderful array of collars and ties just look at photographs of men on the beach and in the park! It may also come as a surprise to see that, as early as 1936, there were quite extensive preparations for a possible war.

In Birmingham In The Thirties we've tried to create the illusion that all of thirties life is represented here. For a while lose today and become a part of the past.
