I thought it strange that the clock has just been left there to rot? Sad

Hi Norm, On this map scan page there's a super aerial photo sent in by TonyS, which shows what used to be there in 1963.

Callow and Maddox started out in the Victoria Buildings, I worked for them when they moved to larger premises at Curriers Close in Canley, no longer trading now.

Plans to redevelop the site were approved in 2005 but had to be started within 5 years. There was another proposal to redevelop the next door Albert Buildings at the same time (ie. Iceland block) and create twin towers with the old market clock crowning one of them.
