More information on the Pelham Arms on Alum Rock Road to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Pelham Arms 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 Pelham Arms. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

This view looks directly along Pelham Road and shows the shops on the corner of Belcher's Lane. The gas-fitter Leonard James Thomas was at No.1 Pelham Road in Kelly's 1921 trade directory. The 1925 electoral roll shows the corn dealer Clara Richmond next door at No.20 Belcher's Lane. She later moved the short distance to 765 Alum Rock Road.

Mention was made that the society were endeavouring to stamp out the black scab disease in and around the district, and the society were purchasing 50 tons of potatoes direct from Scotland, so as to have the best seed and immune varieties. The society will shortly have a membership of 1,200."
