Image Detail & Specifications

The Digbeth Institute, also known as Digbeth Civic Hall, still stands but much has changed, particularly the shopping facilities on the ground floor. In this 1950's view one can see the neat and tidy shop frontages of Boots, a BSA Cycle outlet, Digbeth Electrical and, at No.77, a shop operated by I. W. Bassovitch. The shops are flanked by the Bull's Head and Old Bull's Head public houses. Digbeth Institute has served many different uses in recent years however it was originally designed for community and civic use. In 1944 Wallace Lawler founded the Public Opinion Action Association, a forum which met weekly at the Digbeth Institute. Designed by Arthur Harrison, the building was officially opened on January 16th, 1908 as an institutional church attached to Carr's Lane Congregational Church.
