Carlo’s Madin Desk

Carlo came over today to get his John Madin desk.






The desks are from the John Madin’s Birmingham Central Library, which has been stripped and is being demolished. They’re the original ones as designed by Madin to fit inside the library. We nabbed a couple when they were on eBay, after some smart soul had managed to rescue a few. We’ve managed to rescue a little bit of history.

  1. Wow. I spent a goodly portion of my A level revision sitting at one of those.

      Carlo’s lawyer friend did all his studying there too. They’re beautiful things.
