The census gives charles A boot as at the Swan (though 1900 Kellys lists it as Thomas Alma Boot). William & Thomas Checketts are at 1 back of 19 Rann St. I will send you the page

Lyn, William is down as Willie at 115 Digbeth, a public house, with father Harry and mother Minnie, Minnies maiden name was Roberts the same as Mrs Doyles. I would think Maud and Minnie are sisters.

No 115 Digbeth was the Beehive Tavern, a beerhouse. According to McKenna it was painted in 1872 by A. Tarlington, a local artist . It was apparently a "curious tall narrow building with bow windows either side of a central door", three stories in height, but only one central bow window on upper floors." can't find any reference to A. Tarlington on the net

I've got six framed prints of watercolours by A Tarlington, they were being sold in the Library shop about 20 years go. He painted lots of local scenes, the originals are held by the Library, none of my prints are of The Beehive Taven but I don't know how many of the originals they hold.
