A few months back we took a trip to the Library of Birmingham's Archives, Heritage and Photography Centre, where we scoured the archives for the original architect's drawings for the Birmingham Municipal Bank headquarters on Broad Street.

With help from the amazing staff in the Wolfson Centre we were thrilled to locate the original planning application drawings by architect Thomas Cecil Howitt, submitted on 2 December 1931. You can see a selection of these drawings above, which have been reproduced with the kind permission of the Library of Birmingham.
