Every photographer who visits the Bullring shopping centre takes a picture of this beautiful structure as it is the feature that distinguishes it from all the others. The Bullring as it is seen today opened in 2003 and replaced an earlier 1960s redevelopment of the Bullring, which had been the site of a market since the 12th century. I am just old enough to remember the Bullring before it was cleared in the late 1950s for the first Bullring Centre which opened in 1964. More about the Bullring on wiki LinkExternal link The architecture is remarkably imaginative to the extent that it offends the Little Englander fraternity who would have us back living in mud huts in a barter economy if they could.
