Birmingham's grandest civic buildings cluster around pedestrianised Victoria Sq, at the western end of New St, dominated by the stately facade of Council House , erected in 1874–79. A facelift in the 1990s gave the square modernist sphinxes and a fountain topped by a naked female figure, nicknamed 'the floozie in the jacuzzi' by locals, overlooked by a disapproving statue of Queen Victoria .
