John Lewis Store (Part of New Street Station Reconstruction)
This is coming on in leaps and bounds and getting higher and higher!
Here are some photos taken recently and some taken three months ago for comparison. The views were taken walking counter-clockwise from Dudley Street – along Station Street – up Hill Street (see map below).
