Hello carolina. I have countless pages of stuff about old Birmingham and many of the old pictures were enhanced and re-printed years ago to help me with my venture as a tourist guide for Birmingham. I have resumed my task of de-cluttering and I am sorting out several boxes of papers and while I am at it I will keep looking for the pictures others have asked about.
Not an old pub but it did keep them stocked up with beer. An M.& B. horse drawn drayin 1938.
Hi Phil, It ws good to see that photo of the Royal George pub in Aston. My father was the licencee in 1930. JohnSA nice photo showing not only another now defunct public house the Royal George on Park Rd in Aston, but also the now gone from the face of the earth HP sauce factory at the rear of it.
There is a watermarked copyrighted photo dated 1920 on the site below.Hello Stitcher
I am trying to trace a photo of a pub my Great Great Grandmother used to manage. It was the Shakespeare Inn and the address was 37 Parade according to the 1891 census. Her name was Mary Hayes. Hoping you can help
We frequently drop into The Shakespeare for a bite to eat when we are going to the Coffin Works, or Symphony Hall. Good pub grub!
It is stated that there was a pub on this site since 1829I'm looking for some help with a photograph that I've found. It claims to be the Red Lion on Soho Road, Handsworth in 1929. The clothes the bowler hatted gent is wearing gets the date about right, but the new Red Lion which is listed, is still there but abandoned was built in 1901. Does anyone know what the pub is in the photograph?
Thank you for the new photograph. Given that practical photography was not really available until the mid 19th century I think a date of 1829 is unlikely. I suspect that both of these were taken probably around 1900 just before the pub was demolished in 1901.
Well remember The Shakespeare. I had my 21st there on a hot August night in 1975. Coincidentally I shared it with the landlady of the time - don't remember her name - who was , I think, 29 on the same day. Had an all nighter and emerged into the bright sunlight the next morning and just collapsed onto the grass verge outside. Oh to be young again - just a glass of port now!
