Bull Ring Centre Opened (1964)

British Pathé: Published to YouTube on 13 Apr 2014. 

Full title reads: “Birmingham. Bull Ring Centre Opened”. 

Inside the centre we see a yacht display, butcher’s shop, and an electrical shop with a display of TVs, radios and electric guitars.

Then we see the outdoor market, still part of the city centre despite the new shopping centre.

Next, a car turns off the main road into the Bull Ring Auto Park. The car is pushed onto a trolley and down to a parking bay.

Now we visit the covered bus station, built into the centre. The nearby escalator takes arriving passengers up to New Street and Small Brook.

Inside the shopping centre there’s an aviary. A small boy enjoys a model motorcycle ride.

When you watch a video on our site, it streams directly from YouTube. That means the person who uploaded the film gets an increase in their YouTube ‘views’ count, in turn making YouTube more likely to promote their footage to other people.
