Hi Lyn yes it was a part of Ansell it was used storage of bottle beer in cratesif we go back to post 183 photos 2 .3 and 4....they show a smaller ansells building ...does anyone know if this was actually part of the main ansells brewery which i think was further up the road ?? i just found it interesting
Vyse Street was on the right just after the railway bridge ( coming from Gravelly Hill ) There was also a pub on the corner.hi smudge i didnt realise there was a vyse street down that way...there was a vine st...i think buttons factory was in portland st actually it may still be there
There was a Fredrick Smith’s and Sons Brewery in Lichfield Rd Aston. My mother and Aunt worked there in the offices. As women they were never allowed into the Brewery. When it closed my Mother was given her typewriter and many items . She will be 91 soon and still has items such as beer mats, ashtrays and playing cards all with the Smiths trademark on. They also had a chain of pubs around Birmingham. I will ask her about this and can add more info later.
