In this photograph the former Frankfort Arms can be seen in quite a dilapidated condition. The premises had recently been used as Beckett's Hockley Licensed Betting Office.

During the Edwardian period the Frankfort Arms was operated by Cheshire's Brewery Ltd. and would later form part of the estate of Mitchell's and Butler's. Objection was made to the renewal of the licence on the grounds of redundancy in February 1929.

More information on the Frankfort Arms on Great Russell Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Frankfort 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 Frankfort Arms. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
