This development of Birmingham as a major industrial and commercial centre began with the construction of the Birmingham Canal. The size and importance of the town grew rapidly as soon as railway communications were established, and development of the central area into the form it has today, began with the construction of New Street station.

The rise of Birmingham's importance was such that during the 1880s it was accorded City status while the station had to be doubled in size. Throughout its history, New Street Station has had considerable influence on the city's progress and development.

This series of self-contained books begins by looking at the impact of the canal on later events. The story of the construction of New Street and the pioneering Curzon Street stations is covered in detail together with accounts of their influence on Birmingham and their subsequent history right through to the present day.
