You must be talking of this building at the junction of Bull St and Corporation St. I think it housed Dunne's the Hatters on the ground floor. Lots of buildings had spires in those days and quite a few of them down Corporation St.

Posted by lynne webbLyn, Carrs Lane is before the bus stops, Albert St. was opposite Bull St. I would think the building with the spire was somewhere near where the new courts are now.I could be completely wrong though.
i know lynne ..i was looking at the bus stops the other way to you...lol think you could be right about that spire...
silly billy volty...by the way im going to post a few of my old brum pics later on...may i be so bold as to ask what st/rd you were born in...may have some of interest to you....thats if yer interested of course....
I was born in hospital but spent my first 5 years in Green Lane, Handsworth. If you have any photo's of a good looking liitle kid with either a push along steel wheelbarrow, or in pedal car or on a tricycle, then it must be me.
But why do churches have spires?
