pub 9...the red lion was on the corner of summer lane and bridge st west...it was demolished sometime in early 1920 and so far no pic has been found of it...the police station now stands on its ground..

This pub was in my family for a while in the late 1800s. A photo would be nice.

I used to work in Hatchett St off Summer Lane. I remember The Barrell. About halfway down I think.

Thanks for looking, Lyn.
Have you tried uploading photos to the Picture Gallery?
I started an album for the Old Brum Photo Request thread, it worked well for me.

Two of my ancestors had the Red Lion. It was at 210 Bridge Street West, on the corner with Summer Lane where the police station is now. The station used to be further up Bridge Street.
