The two shops I remember on Great Lister Street were the (meatball) and peas shop (if I put the right word it gets censored by the word censor). It was one of my weekly chores to fetch a jug full every Friday night for tea. Considering I wouldn't eat them if you paid me to I thought it pretty unfair that it was me that had to fetch them.


Though it usually gave me the chance to nick into the second hand bookshop (which was the other shop I remember) that was nearby and buy some second hand comics or exchange some of the ones I had for a few coppers extra.

The one I used to go to was right up the other end up by Henry Street, sorry I have no idea of the name now, but it would have been around the late 50's early 60's.

Hi d-tov


Welcome to the forum, as the pub token you have names "The Why Not Inn Bloomsbury" and Bloomsbury was what that part of Nechells was called then I think there is little doubt that you are on the right track. Pub tokens were given out by Landlords for various reasons and could only be redeemed at the pub named on the token.


What in particular did you want to know, if I can't sort out the information you are looking for, I'm pretty sure that one of the other posters should be able to help.

This seems to be a not-uncommon name. there were ones in Moseley St, Sparkhill, Handsworth, Cherrywood Road, Smallheath, Smallbrook St, Dudley, Wolverhampton, Oldbury and Smethwick. but the Bloomsbury one was apparently in Oliver St, at least it is mwntioned in the newspapers in 1865 and 1869. Might have been no 15 , which was a beer retailer in 1871

Mike,


I looked through the trade directories and I couldn't find any mention of this pub by name. Perhaps as you suspect it was a beer house only and therefore never listed by name in the directories. Perhaps "Pudding" who looks in from time to time might have more idea where it was located as he has it on his list of pubs that was quoted at the start of this line of enquiry.

Hi Malcolm


Welcome to the forum, sorry I have never seen a photo of Adelaide Terrace, but I do remember it next to St Vincent's School. The school eventually took over the whole area where the terrace was as a playground, but while I was a pupil there the only part of the terrace that was left backed onto the railway arches.

The first house was my Gran Humpages the second was her sister aunt Gert
The third was a Mrs Judge her Daughter Irene & Tom Hession
The first 3 died late 59 /60s
I remember a family with children moved in 3rd /4th house with  young kids
I would think in about 1956 but can't recall the name



My elder sisters have now passed that may have had more information
