Downtown Birmingham: Architectural and Historical Walking Tour Guide is a 1977 publication by the Birmingham Historical Society and the First National Bank of Birmingham. Marjorie Longenecker White served as editor, assisted by architectural editors Gray Plosser and Richard Sprague of the firm Kidd, Wheeler and Plosser. A second edition was published in 1980.

The book is divided into three walking tours, the "Old Downtown", "Old Northside and Newtown Uptown", and "The Civic Center". Each tour tells the history of a section of Birmingham primarily through buildings, both those extant and those which have been demolished.
