The pale strip running up / down the picture here is the former Baskerville Passage, a narrow alley running between the factories which lay between the two arms of Gibson's Arm canal basin.

Collonade relocated to the peace garden around St Thomas's in Bath Row. It used to be used as a photo location for weddings at the registry office which used to stand to the right in this photo.

Part of the extensive canal network that used to serve the centre of Birmingham. The basin was filled in and the site is now occupied by Baskerville House, the Repertory Theatre and the third Central Library.

This was Gibsons Arm, part of a privately owned branch off the Newhall Branch of the Birmingham Canal. A second arm ran parallel to this under the present Hall of Memory.

The canal tunnel linking Gibson's Arm to the Newhall Branch canal passed under the buildings to the left of the top part of the visible remains of the canal in the photograph.

The Hall Of Memory

On the 12th June 1923, The Prince of Wales laid the foundation stone. He said that the building would stand to "symbolise to generations to come that Birmingham stood for, during a period of great national crisis - work of every kind unflinchingly given, compassion to the sick and wounded, courage and resource in adversity, and, above all, self-sacrifice in the face of death."

The Hall of Memory was opened by H.R.H. Prince Arthur of Connaught on 4th July 1925. Built of Portland Stone, and constructed almost entirely by Birmingham craftsmen, it cost £60,000 raised solely through public donations.
