Fascinating Exhibition of Mechanical Paraphernalia.

We visit the main Birmingham art gallery often, but last year we found this place just round the corner from the main entrance. The exhibition was for art faker John Myatt. Very interesting, and all for free. Shall certainly check around the corner in future.

Loads to see in this exhibition and well worth the £5 entry fee. :-) This is the second exhibit we have seen at the Gas Hall and we have always been impressed.
