The Smithfield Garage Ltd

The Smithfield Garage Ltd, opposite 38 Meriden Street, Birmingham, 2005 • According to the history here this was built by Harry Weedon, an architect known for Art Deco factories and Odeon cinemas. It later became Hartwell Smithfield, a dealer in VW and BMW cars. It’s also a site of archaeological interest, with medieval workings having been discovered beneath. In 2006 there was a plan to turn the site into a temporary coach station, but it escaped that fate and is still there.
