The Bartons Arms – a 1901 pub

A new report published today by the ‘CentreforCities’ entitled “Cities Outlook 1901” explores what lessons can be learned today from the way cities were in 1901. Birmingham features strongly in the report and an interesting blog:  “What happened to the ‘City of a Thousand Trades?’ Birmingham from 1901 to today” report author Naomi Clayton raises further important questions.

Significantly this research resonates with outcomes and recommendations beginning to emerge from the Inclusive Economic Growth KLOE reference group.
