Home for the rich
Rich people in this century include pop stars and football heroes as well as those who have made a fortune through the media or new technology.
Trendy rich people these days live in apartments like the ones in the picture in Gas Street, Birmingham.
They are in the centre of the city and near to places of work, and play!

How do these buildings in Gas Street look different to those in the same area in the eighteenth century.
