City never learns as his­tory de­stroyed

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

DEAR Ed­i­tor, It is lit­tle won­der that Birm­ing­ham’s his­to­rian Dr Carl Chinn is out­raged as yet an­other piece of our his­tory is de­stroyed.

The Fox and Grapes could have had some vi­a­bil­ity when you con­sider that within walk­ing dis­tance we will have Cur­zon Street, the hub of HS2.

Manch­ester, Liver­pool, Lon­don and Glas­gow have all had the sense to pre­serve their his­toric build­ings.

But not Birm­ing­ham. We con­crete it, chop it down or re­duce it to rub­ble!

And did I read that a coun­cil­lor said that they de­serve more money? If I had my way then they would be in the stocks and I would give Dr Chinn the first box of toma­toes!

Birm­ing­ham res­i­dent, by email

>The old Fox & Grapes pub be­hind Moor Street Sta­tion has now been de­mol­ished
