Lovely bike is the fitting on the back a super stable bike stand? Is there electrical assistance - looks like there might be a crank drive built in.

The fitting on the back is to hold the front wheel of a kids bike so it becomes a tagalong. They have 3 small kids and live car free in a city centre apartment. Her partner/husband was on a bike, eldest son (5ish) was riding his bike in the park but would be attached when on roads, middle child was on a balance bike which would go in the front with them for the ride home.

It is electric assist, she had a non electric version beforehand but found hills difficult so saved up to trade it in for electric assist. She said she's had it about a year. Was good to see. Are there any more cargo bikes out there in Birmingham that we don't know about?

Those tagalong things are rather good.  (As are cargo bikes, obviously.)
