What we thought of the past, in the past

Searching through the council website on an unrelated matter (and no I couldn’t get the www.birmingham.gov.uk/google search to find what I wanted either) I stumbled over a page of ‘Conservation Publications’ which includes this gem (from 1997) ‘Signalling the Sixties’. It’s a brief guide to some of the sixties architecture in Birmingham, and not just in the city centre either. Despite my suspicions that every bit of our late twentieth-century heritage is being wiped out, all the buildings are still around – which maybe indicates that the well deigned, built and maintained are here to stay.
