Thanks Volty, Nice link to Lost Pubs.

Have corrected to RJ Bradshaws

and checked out the other name

to be Gladstone Arms as you suggested.

Am reading back over what all we have discussed on the Forum here and am thinking:-
Holder's Arms is Moulders Arms

Will post an update for any more correction to-morrow, and then continue to look for any more that we have talked about over the past year and I've forgotten about.

Lynn.

Thanks Volty, This gives it the full title as Kings Arms Inn
What was the difference of an Inn and a Tavern
Also when you give two street names does that mean that it's on the corner or is that a silly question to ask.

Phil gave me picture of this in Message 5 of this thread but your picture here gives a little more to the right hand side were the horses head is.

Just a though, but have you ever tried contacting Kieron McMahon at, http://www.midlandspubs.co.uk/ I'm sure that if anybody could tell you where to obtain a list of Holder pub's then he would be the man. He is very knowledgeable about the pubs of Birmingham.

Silly question.

I don't know the difference between an Inn and a Tavern, I thought it might be to do with overnight accommodation but this very boring yankee entry in Wikipedia thinks otherwise.

Phil, Shall contact Kieron McMahon and will post what he says.

Taverns and Inns - Basically Volty I must remember to look up Wikapedia for these sort of things. Thanks for reminding me of that.

If you have not come accross them before you could try posting a query on the noticeboard at http://www.pubhistorysociety.co.uk . There does not seem to be any way of searching for items on the board, and the queries do seem to be mostly for individual pubs, but you do not seem to have to be a member to post

Bild entfernt (keine Rechte) Hi all, would this part of a photo that I have zoomed into as the subject of interest be Holders brewery? in nova Scotia street sorry I don't know the year it was taken,I think the pub you see in the picture is or was the castle.

Pudding nice photo, but I don't think the Midland Brewery (Holders) was that close to Gosta Green where your photo of the Warwick Castle was taken. As it looks as it was taken from Aston Technical College when it was being built I would date it toward the end of the 50's. I think the brewery in view is Holts Brewery

Have been looking at Curzon Street Goods Yard and have come across a full view of Holder's Midland Brewery - top right.
It was up on a much higher plot of land from the Goods yard - one can see to-day the brick work that banked the land up which is now in behind 'The Think Tank' on Curzon Street. Lynn.Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)

Hi everyone..my first post on this forum. Hope it's the right place! Re. the photo of 22 and 1/2 Templefield St. The lady in the doorway was my great grandmother (Ellen Nutting) outside great grandfather Philip's store and yes, the little girl was Cicely (my great aunt). Great to put a date on it. Philip died in 1915...nearly 100 years ago now! There is another picture on the forum somewhere of the Holders Arms pub, which was apparently in Washington Street, Holloway Head. I'd swear the lady in the doorway was Ellen again. Shame that there isn't a record of pub landlords and ladies! I'm sorry I don't know how to insert the picture here in this post but I guess anyone could find it anyway by searching.

Hello oldmangonewest, welcome to the forum.

I'll try and get the two pictures you refer to into a single post as soon as I get back to my desk.

There is a way of checking who lived in pubs and would probably be the landlord.
Kelly's directories list the occupants of addresses through the years, so all you need is access to a range of directories. Forum member Mikejee is particularly good at providing such information.
