Oh wow my dad was born in 1965 year later, omg house of Fraser is still the
same, I'm 29 years old but was 21 when I used to work for house of Fraser,
I bumped into a very very old lady who said she worked for house of Fraser
years ago. House of Fraser is very old inside the staff toilets and locker
rooms are still the same, good old days

Its amazing to see that film and wonder how many of those folks are still
alive & kicking now..most of the youngest kids seen on there must be in
their fifties now...scary really when you think about it..time marches on
relentlessly and waits for no one...

I was born in Birmingham, and remember these images very well....I always
thought it was a dump!
But to be fair, it is much nicer now and is getting better by the month.
If you get chance, then visit the new Central's absolutely
beautiful and is the biggest in Europe. The new Bull Ring shopping centre
is wonderful, and the icing on the cake will be next year when the new "New
Street railway station" opens along with it's ultra modern shops.
The city centre's new Tram System will be operating next year also.
Did you notice how slim the women were, compared to todays fatties! (sorry
ladies, but it's true).

Those people who are commenting things like Asians and blacks have taken
over well I just want to say one thing. What about USA, Australia, New
Zealand, South Africa, Canada and so on. Was those originally while people
countries, NO as the whiles killed most of the local people can took it
over. While people have been migrating to other countries and places for a
long time. Now it is the other way around and you are angry. Well I am sure
the red Indians didn't like their land being totally taken over by
Europeans. I am just saying stop judging people because of their colour and
just think of them as British.

Old Birmingham looked much better than the new. Now Birnminghan is a trash

bark, do not know how to behave.
