Yes there is and a pet shop, a Farm Foods and I think a video shop. The Dolphin was a big pub with a Bowling Green as I remember.

It would help if they put the right captions on. As I understand it New St Station (FIRST PICTURE SUPPOSEDLY) did not open till 1854, and anyway was never actually on New St. The picture is, however, dated 1849 and is of of New st , as it shows the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists building on the right. So it is wrong on two counts

I remember the entrance to the old New Street station, wasn't it next to the Queens Hotel in Stephensons Place?
