That is further along than where the lamp is, and is The Woodman.

You might. It would certainly be true. And to prove it you have another chance...I seem to be fixated on Large Lamps lately, and here's another one. Two views of the same Pub. Put me out of my misery and name it for me will you?

It's on the right in the first pic, and the left in the second...

Oh gosh, it may not be the same one and the first pic may just be a lamp post...MOTHER!!!!

If you keep talking about large lamps, you will send Phils blood pressure up.

Mike

I thought that too, but is it far enough down on the photo, might it not be the dining rooms?

Nah. He's too old for all that, besides he is a perfect gentleman....In spite of what Sheldonboy and Voltman have told me....

Has anyone a better picture of it by the way?

Phil
I think the sign (which you can't read) and the lamp are sited between 200 & 199 (Red Lion), See below. Also have fiddled and reversed image of lamp and i think you can just read (when you know what you are looking for ) Red Lion Inn

....or the original name of this Bromsgrove Street Pub, renamed the Missing Bar some time ago, which I think maight be a bit gay. But it does have a wonderful replica of that famous Marilyn pose outside....

Don't tell me you can't remember the Australian Bar one of Birmingham's original Gay Bars? From long before that area was know as the Gay quarter

Sorry, of course, but I only went in once, honest Miss. When I used to go to the Diskery for my vinyl and get my dead posh suits from Tommy Waters....it seemed OK to me then...still use the Fox and Grapes when out with a few of my old workmatesses...

And then there was the forerunner of this one too...remember?
