Old Birmingham / Re: Charles Napier pub, Gooch Street, Birmingham .. 1960's
« Last post by mikejee on January 08, 2020, 09:00:06 PM »
The online electoral rolls shows Charles McCarte in 1947 being at 27 Golden Hillock Road with 7 other people, only two of which had the same surname (so was presumably flats or a lodging house). In 1955 He and Jean are listed as at the Big Bulls Head, Digbeth (75 Digbeth). No other hits came up., but the online rolls do not cover every year, and you would have to consult the hard copies at the library for many years

I'm afraid that Kellys directories did not (usually) list the landlords of pubs in the 1960s & 70s, probably because many were changing quickly. However the online electoral rolls  show that 1955 it was occupied by James & Hilda Cartmell; in 1957 Charles & Jean McCarte; in 1960 & 1962 Peter & Gwladys Gorrie; and in 1965 Harold & Olive Witherspoon. Intermediate and later years are avaialable at the central library


A long shot but would anyone have any info on this Charles McCarte or able to point me in the right direction? Iím fairly certain he is my Grandfather.

I believe that the Indian Team  Threaten to boycott the games when The Archery and Shooting events were originally omitted from the Games. As Edmund says these events have been transferred to India and will probably take place a few weeks before the Main Games

The good fairy, in her skimpy costume, created a lasting impression with me even though she had no wand and looked like she'd been looking after the mince pies.

Hello Scipio
I have no idea perhaps it was the first number that came into their heads.  I saw the 36.000 quoted in quite a few places.
Take care

Family Panto Day tomorrow, folks, Oh no it's not! Oh yes it is! ;D
Peg.
Had a great time - only thing was I got the wrong panto, I thought we were seeing Jack and The Beanstalk , turned out to be Alladdin, no problem, it does't make a lot of difference there is virtually no storyline anyway - Oh yes there is!  Oh no there isn't! ;D ;D ;D
Peg.
P.S. Christmas? It's behind you!
