Fair City Cars

Fair City Cars, 125 Digbeth Road, Birmingham, 2005 • Poignant name and home-made chauffeur logo tacked onto a handsome premises which has since been demolished, along with the adjoining Hennessey’s Bar (which opened till 4am, hence presumably the need for taxis). The sturdy iron letterbox stating “The Lightfoot Refrigeration Co Ltd” gives a clue to its original occupants – it’s next door to the still-standing Digbeth Cold Storage warehouse.
