A remarkable collection of photographs capturing the city during the 1950s and 60s has been found hidden away at the University of Birmingham.
More than 1,000 colour 35mm slides, taken by former lecturer Phyllis Nicklin, were discovered by David Oram - the man who created the popular Brumpic website and Twitter account with Melanie Reid.
Now, more than 60 of the images will be reproduced in the Birmingham Post and on our website over the next two weeks including the first 11 in the gallery above.
In this week's edition of the Post , out in shops today, there is the first of two #Nicklin Unseen supplements showcasing her work chronicling the city during the middle part of the 20th century.
They reveal parts of the city centre that have changed beyond recognition while other areas will still be familiar.
The library of images have been scanned and brought to the public's attention by David after he discovered the slides in a long-forgotten filing cabinet at the university and many of the pictures have never been seen publicly until now.
Ms Nicklin was born in Birmingham in 1909 and lived through the widespread structural changes the city was experiencing.
She was a graduate and postgraduate of the University of Birmingham and a temporary lecturer at The University of Nottingham during the Second World War before pursuing a career in teaching and teacher training.
She later became a staff tutor in geography at the extra-mural department at the University of Birmingham and died in 1969.
Some of the unseen images can be viewed on the Brumpic interactive table within the Birmingham History Gallery at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery until April 18.
