Pub Quiz League

A new format for the pub quiz to help with the Covid-19 lockdown. I am posting this photograph and every person wishing to play can then PM me with an answer by the deadline of 22.00hrs [Birmingham time] Tuesday April 7th [tomorrow]. Everybody with a correct answer will be awarded a point. And so we'll continue with a series of pics. The league winner at the end of the Covid-19 crisis will win a prize!

the photo looks familiar to me keiron but a name just does not jump out at me and it would take me a long time to go through all my pub photos and then i may not have it...i did have an idea but checked it out and its not the one i was thinking of but good luck to all those having a go

My first thought was Albion Vaults but no, that's not right. Like you lyn I seem to know the pub but I'm stumped.

Looks like the Great Western on Icknield Street, corner of Park Road
 
Surprisingly, only one correct answer was submitted and guyarab identified the building as the Great Western, although he was naughty by blurting it out on here rather than using the PM guidelines.

So guyarab goes to the top of the league with one point.
 
No correct answers for yesterday's photograph. I thought I would mix it up a bit by chucking in a more recent photograph.

The current position remains :

Three correct answers for yesterday's photograph. Well done to those who correctly identified the Carpenters' Arms on the corner of Adelaide Street. In recent years it has traded as Moon Shisha Lounge and Moon Vapez. I thought the old red brick looked better!

Three correct answers for yesterday's photograph. Well done to those who correctly identified The Marlborough on Anderton Road in Sparkbrook. If I am honest I thought the landmark tower would be better known by forum members.

This is a another clock tower public-house, a beautiful pub that is perhaps under-valued and seemingly receives less patrons than it deserves.

This is a tricky one. This early pub was rebuilt but even that one was demolished in 2014. Mostly known as an Ansell's house.

A couple of correct answers for yesterday's photograph. Well done to those who correctly identified the Malt Shovel on the corner of Coventry Street and Milk Street. It was trading as Billy's when I took this photograph. It is now a backpacker hostel.

This is a photograph I took in 2004. I'm not sure what the building is used for nowadays, it was being revamped when I last cycled past but that was a while ago.

More correct answers than I would have thought for yesterday's photograph so well done to those who correctly identified the Union on the corner of Berners Street and Gerrard Street. Lyn tells me that : "its slowly being turned into a muslim school of some sorts but I heard money is tight and its taking years to complete."
