off the wall
From the Urban Splash website: -
"The former British headquarters of Cincinnati Machine Tools, has been a landmark on Birminghamâ€™s skyline since 1957, and has been intriguing brummies with her subtle art-deco inspired exterior design. Whilst on the inside Cincinnati is pure 1950â€™s style and American glamour with lots of marble, terracotta and terrazzo, and as well as a gym and canteen it has its own 200 seat Auditorium. Cincinnati Machine Tools, now MAG, have moved just around the corner to our very own Fort Dunlop..."
What attracted me to paying a visit here was the THAT marble, as well as having a peek at that floorâ€¦ which I would actually love to have in my kitchen. The building is huge, and limited time meant I couldnâ€™t see half of what I wanted to see unfortunately. What I did see however, was very impressiveâ€¦ they certainly donâ€™t make them like this anymore! I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever spent so much time staring at walls and floorsâ€¦.
Thanks for the phone call, Catvstyle â€¦ you saved me from going with my original plan of access, which would have been a damn sight more uncomfortable!
and yes, I was fascinated by this floor...
