More information on the Dog and Partridge on Alcester Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Dog and Partridge from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Dog and Partridge. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"Thomas Larvin [41], alias "Tommy the Tanker," was charged with breaking a number of plate-glass windows and doing damage to the extent of about £40. Police-Constable Essex met the prisoner in Bordesley late on Wednesday night and stopped him. At the time he had a large piece of brick in each hand, and when asked what he intended doing, readily confessed that he had premeditated breaking the window of a tobacconist named Doody, who lived close by. Essex took the brick from the fellow and let him go. A few moments afterwards the officer learned that earlier in the evening a brick had been crashed through the plate-glass windows of the Bull's Head, Digbeth, doing damage to the extent of £10. The constable at once went in quest of Larvin, and caught him up in Deritend. "I want you, Tommy," said the officer. "Is it about Ward's window?" he said, "because I broke that, and there are two or three more about somewhere, but I don't know exactly where." Pointing to the Old Crown public-house, he remarked, "That's one, there." The window was shattered, and a little further on the officer drew attention to the damage that had been done to the window at the Fountain public-house. "Oh, ah!" exclaimed the accused, "That's another I broke; and there are another two or three about somewhere." [Laughter.] After the accused had been locked up it was found that the window of Thomas William Cheshire, publican, Dog and Partridge, Alcester Street, had been demolished. He merely said he did it to get locked up. This made the fifth time Larvin had been in custody for window-breaking, and he was therefore committed to the sessions for trial."
