Pub Quiz League

I liked the answer submitted by A Sparks yesterday :

"I believe the picture on the quiz today is the barometer on the Fighting Cocks in Moseley Village. I went to a gig there once and I've been in the village a number of times but I must admit, I don't ever remember noticing it! What's been so interesting about the quiz is that it's drawn attention to many things I've not noticed or realised before - probably the case for others too. I'm sure we've all learnt a lot!"


I hope some BHF members feel the same as this has been a very nice bonus of the Pub Quiz.

It is the final Saturday Stinker - lovely 1930s image but can you name the pub?

Curly has reached an incredible 70 points by identifying the Electric Tavern on Belgrave Road in yesterday's Saturday Stinker. Moreover, he also spotted the ladders next door - another case of the ladders!! Well done also to Elmo, Radiorails, allanbrum and Dave Riley for spotting this former Atkinson's house. Curly still has a two-point lead at the top - can Elmo reel him in before the end of the quiz?

It is the last Sunday in the quiz so we can have a Sunday Sale. I have plenty of these so I should have used more of them in the quiz. It is a plan that accompanied an auction sale notice. There is plenty of information on the plan so lots of clues or ways to tackle the problem. The tavern that I want you to name was not actually part of the auction but is marked adjacent to Lot 6 and marked by the arrow. Can you name the pub?

I did not think yesterday's auction plan would present too many difficulties - how wrong I was? What puzzles me is that the plan shows that the building had to be numbered No.59. Curious therefore that quite a few people went for the Royal Oak, including league leader Curly. This was a great chance for Elmo to close the gap at the top but he went into radio silence. So, the only two correct answers were submitted by Mikejee and sospiri - well done to you both of you who identified the Gate Tavern.

Six people spotted the clock tower of the Salutation Inn on the corner of Snow Hill and Summer Lane - well done knobbydave, Curly, Williamstreeter, Radiorails, allanbrum and Elmo. Four more images to go and Curly has a 2 point lead. Can Elmo take it to the wire.

Did yesterday's photograph feature a window cleaner who had lost his ladders? The pub in question was the White Horse in Moor Street. Well done to those who successfully spotted this public-house. Elmo notched up his 70th point but is still two points down with three images to go - though we have an inn sign and a toughie to maybe create an exciting finale .....

Everyone's favourite horror - the dreaded inn sign image. A lovely sign from 1978 but can you name the pub?

Only two people successfully identified the inn sign of the Witton Arms yesterday. I have just acquired a box of 1,500 slides featuring inn signs which will give me something to tackle over the winter! Radiorails is finishing the quiz in hot form whilst Curly has wrapped things up with his submission yesterday. We still have two images to go but CONGRATULATIONS to Curly for bagging the Pub Spotter of the Year award.

Curly - if you PM your address to me I will sort out a small prize. Same goes for Elmo who will get a runners-up prize for a sterling effort. The scores are really impressive .....
