Old ad from Birmingham England

Well, it is very windy here in Southern California. I would normally be out riding but spending time going through Dads old briefcase and came across some old print ads . My Dad was born in Birmingham England in 1900. He left England in the late teens for Montreal Canada. I am guessing this is from about 1916 or so . Dads father was a jeweler so most of the ads are from watchmakers and stuff. But look what I found! So cool

This is from Wikipedia. I guess they restored that section of town
