In the past two days I have discovered my great grandfather was landlord of the Old Sun Inn, Coleshill Street, Sutton Coldfield, before moving the The British Oak pub in Highgate. His father, my great great grandfather was landlord of the Duke Inn, Duke Street, Sutton Coldfield, which has remained much as it was in his time.

img363.jpg It is getting increasingly difficult to be sure what has or has not been previously posted on this thread, but I will carry on because I still have a few pictures. If I repeat a previous post and it turns out to be exactly the same pub, from the same angle, I will ask for it to be removed.

This is The Stag & Pheasant and it is/was on Gosta green. The photo was taken in 1930.

Hello My old mate, I am waiting to come across that one as I progress on my trawl through a lifetimes collection of papers, pamphlets, leaflets, books and my own family photo's. It is a slow and long job because a large briefcase can hold months of mooching and ferreting. I keep leaving my crafwork for a few minutes every hour or so to sort a few more and post one or two. I will post the photo's of any and all old pubs I come across.

1870, Lady Pool Road junction with Stratford Road, note in those days Lady Pool was two words as opposed to it being one word nowadays. The pub was The Angel Inn.
