'In the Footsteps of Phyllis'

Half a century ago Phyllis Nicklin photographed Birmingham.


University of Birmingham lecturer Phyllis Nicklin took shots of Birmingham between 1953 and 1969. Then in 2015 University of Birmingham staff in a clear-out discovered more than 850 of her images. Then more than 70 photographers went back to the same spots as Ms Nicklin to capture the second city's changing landscape.
