So now you know!

King George III's Topographical Collection illustrates Birmingham's dynamic expansion between about 1680 and 1824 with important and rare plans and views, both printed and hand-drawn.  Thanks to George III's enthusiasm for ephemera, however,  it also includes this advertisement of about 1770 for 'the Only Hotel in Birmingham'!
