What looks to be the interior of shed B in 1969 with an empty van being drawn into the lift via the rope attached to the capstan just visible beneath the front buffer of the van. The man in the foreground will unhook the van and the man in the background will then stop the capstan using the lever to his left, the van will then gently run under its own momentum into the lift.

Looking directly down from the old Bullring car park at Moor Street station in 1985. The large concrete pad in the foreground, on which the cars are parked, is the base of the high level goods shed and the roof of the low level shed A.

Following on from the previous picture looking east from the Bullring car park in 1985 the point at which the lines into the goods shed fanned out from the Bordesley goods approaches is evident.

Looking from Moor Street at the site of what was shed A on 20 March 2014 the whole area was excavated to put in this extension of the ring road. The former shed B in the background has had the new brickwork completed with engineers brick whilst the design of the reinforced concrete roof supports has been carried through to the facade of the building.
