Armoury Road [1], Small Heath, built in 1914-6 and designed by the Trussed ConcreteGlossary Term [2] Steel Co. Ltd., was a notable early example of a reinforcedGlossary Term [3] concreteGlossary Term [4] frame. It was demolished in the 1970s, but the similar 1915-6 Trussed ConcreteGlossary Term [5] Steel extension to their older factory on the opposite side of the road survives. In a very Birmingham way, it looks almost derelict, but is used by an Asian-run firm who repair taxis.
