SP0786 : The former Smithfield Garage, Meriden Street, Birmingham

The former Smithfield Garage, Meriden Street, Birmingham
The former Smithfield Garage, Meriden Street, Birmingham
The garage has the date of 1923 above the entrance on the right. It later became part of the Hartwell Motors concern. The garage was at one time dealers for both Volkswagen and BMW cars. Some years ago archeological investigations were made in part of the site, which revealed medieval pottery fragments and other evidence from that period. I don't think the garage is still in business and I don't know if the building is in use, or even if it is still standing.
