This hand-painted panel was part of the elaborate interior of the Woodman Public House, Easy Row, when re-furbished in 1891. The building was demolished in 1964. It is based on an engraving by W Radclyffe, (itself based on a drawing by David Cox) and depicts Birmingham's markets around 1850. The Woodman pub was the meeting place of city councillors in the mid-nineteenth century, prior to the building of the Council House.

Purchased, 1986.
