This building has been explored many times before but i'd never actually made it there myself. So seeing as we were passing by i thought we'd make an unannounced stop off to tick another brummy building off my list.

The original company Ash Petit & Co was founded in 1850. In 1861 the company's agent in Vienna, Carl Kuhn sent his relative Charles Emmanuel Brandauer to Birmingham to build a new factory. Brandauer & Co produced steel pens for over a hundred years. The company is still in business but they don't make pens today.

Piles of paperwork spread liberally round the building could keep you occupied for weeks reading it.
