Photographer's Note

Birmingham is currently undergoing massive redesign around New Street. Not only is the old Pallasades shopping centre (next to the Bullring) being redeveloped but so are the roads which are being dug up whilst tram lines are installed. Apparently, this is being done in anticipation of the controversial HS2 rail project.

Whilst this work is going on there are a series of boarded walkways that funnel people to the all important shopping areas - lest they forget! Here I was walking through one and stood just to one side and snapped a few passers by who were scurrying to the shops as if they only had one day left on earth. Consumption used to be a nasty working class disease from which people died now ardent conspicuous consumers are the living dead!
