I have copied this from my Telsen website....

Telsen Electric Company was formed in Birmingham in 1924
by Mr A. Macnamara at 207 Aston Road.

In 1930 they moved to 56 Miller Street and shortly after moved to their new factory at the corner of Philips Street and Thomas Street.

Incorporated in 1933, the Telsen Electric Company Ltd were manufacturers of wireless broadcast receivers, components and construction kits.

Here is my own recent photo.....

It was, and as far as I know still is, divided into commercial and factory units.
In fact, before I knew who Telsen were I visited an electronics workshop there. I have long had this fanciful idea that somewhere in the building is a unit, or just a cupboard, filled with old Telsen stuff that got left behind when they closed down. But as that was in the thirties it seems highly unlikely.

It would no doubt make an excellent apartment block if it wasn't for the ugly view of the unfinished flyover.

No SB,
It is in Aston between Dartmouth Circus (the steam engine island)" and Aston Cross. At the side of Aston Expressway and Lichfield Road / Aston Road flyover.
