Description

Built in 1854 by William Livock in a grand Italianate style, the hotel was constructed to serve the needs of the rail passengers arriving at New Street Station. The hotel, which was incorporated into the facade of the original New Street Station, was demolished along with the station shortly after this photograph was taken.
