off nechells park road..could anyone identify the pub as it looks more like lichfield road to me...there again i stand to be corrected
The pub is the New Inns on the corner of Stuart Street. Teddy Fenn's butchers shop was the second shop along from the corner of Trevor Street going towards town.

Good evening my grand father and my father used to work at L.H Newton & co back in 1965 or somewhere around there. My grand father was known as big Jim but they was Asian, does anyone know any thing about them or worked with them?
