Beau­ti­ful cities are putting us to shame


LIVER­POOL is in­deed a beau­ti­ful city, as is Cardiff.

Both these cities re­ceived as much bomb­ing in the Sec­ond World War as we in Birm­ing­ham did and the re­build­ing was done with great care to bring back the glory of for­mer years.

All Birm­ing­ham did, and is still do­ing, is re­place any­thing of beauty with steel and glass and as long as it goes straight up and down then that is their idea of style.

It all brings to mind the song of the late Pete Seeger ‘ Lit­tle boxes all made of ticky tacky’ and they all look just the same. Mar­garet Bishop, Solihull
