Was this not the Pub on Arden Road? IIRC, it was an Ansells House.....many good pints there circa early 1960s!
It was in Crawford St; Baz. No pubs in Arden Rd but where it joined Landor St and Adderley Rd; there were the Brittania and the Denmark Inns. 3 generations, possibly 4 of my family used them.

After crossing Arden Road we find ourselves on Bordesley Green Road, passing on our right Meadway Spares and on our left Arthur Holden & Sons paint manufacturer.

We have a thread full of this stuff.  "Old brummy sayings".


Aussie Phil, type it into the search box at top of page to find a link.


Correction:- I should have said "Old Brummy sayings, got any?" Yet here I am looking at a thread full of repeats which have already all been repeated on original thread. ::) ;D

Of course there is also the word 'R', which seems to be a Brummie way of saying yes.  ;D
