Hi Paul

Welcome to the forum, without giving too much detail such as price and where it can be purchased as that would be advertising and that is not allowed on this forum. Can you tell us a little about the book and perhaps who the author is, as there are a multitude of books about Birmingham in the 70's about.

Hi Cherie  do you have a name for this off licence? or number?
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Hello Townie
Great to see you posting. Can you help me.
2 groups in Birmingham I heard of but knew nothing about, They held meetings near Snow Hill Station at licensed premises.
The Oddfellows Club and Pothouse Politicians.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Gerald.

Hi Cherie

Welcome to the forum, would that have been the My Cellar off sales that changed to Wine Market Ltd in the early 70's at 95 to 97 High Street just by the junction of Popular Road. If that's the place then the building is still there today but it's no longer an off licence. Sorry I'm unable to locate a photo at the moment, but I'll have another deeper search later and see what I can come up with, but in the meantime perhaps someone else might have what you are looking for.
