Phyllis Nicklin: Views of Birmingham recaptured 50 years on
"Before and after" shots of Birmingham taken about 50 years apart are being displayed in a new exhibition.
A group of photographers from the city recreated photos taken by university lecturer Phyllis Nicklin between 1953 and 1969.
More than 850 of her images were discovered in 2015 during a clear-out by University of Birmingham staff.
More than 70 photographers went back to the same spots as Ms Nicklin to capture the second city's changing landscape.

"They are a treasure trove and hit nerves with Brummies all over the place because of what they show," says Dave Allen, a photographer who worked on the project.

He said: "Because of discovering Phyllis Nicklin, we thought we must pay homage to her. It's been an amazing experience for me and I hope it has for them too."
