Looking west from the new up platform in November 1987 the charachter of the old building can be seen when compared to the new metal canopies which would be replaced with traditional looking ones when the two stations became linked.

Viewed from the up through platform the station is seen following restoration now complete with GWR running in boards and period lanterns on the terminus station site only. The building directly to the left of the station is the new Bullring car park which stands on the site of the former goods shed the bulding directly behind it is the new Selfridges department store and the Rotunda can be seen to the rear.
