Great archive snaps from 35 years ago in Birmingham

Welcome back to 1987. Britain’s favorite decade is starting to draw to a close – but the end of an era does not mean there was not plenty happening in our big city.

We’ve had a dip into the archives to find out what life was like back then, and pulled out 30 pictures of that year. Events, people, celebs, places and more are all on show in the gallery below.

From the re-opening of Snow Hill, vistas over Selly Oak, and markets in Erdington, there’s plenty for Brummies from all walks of life to dig in to. Take a look and let us know what you remember!

If you could go back in time and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be? Comment below, or talk to us in our Nostalgia group on Facebook.
