In the 1890 Kellys, no 192 Lichfield Road is listed as Frederick Smith brewer, but in the trade section it is listed as a maltsters. Is shown in red on the c 1889 map

William Smith the Younger went into liquidation in 1877. Presumably this is the same family/brewery ? Viv.

From the Birmingham Daily Gazette January 1877.
