Birmingham : Fenestration at The Swan With Two Necks on the corner of Lawley Street and Great Brook Street in Duddeston [1959]

Henry and Amy Heaven were running the Swan With Two Necks in the mid-Edwardian period. Henry's father, a blacksmith by trade, had uprooted the Heaven family from Mangotsfield in Gloucestershire in order to ply his skills in Birmingham.

Not long after Henry had married Amy Heath in 1885, he went into the licensed trade by running the Villa Tavern at Lozells. He and Amy would later run the White Swan on Victoria Road at a time when the pub was operated by Rushton's Brewery Limited. After working for/with two of Birmingham's large breweries, Henry and Amy Heaven managed to gather the finance to buy the Swan With Two Necks. In a ratebook compiled in 1906, Henry Francis Heaven was recorded as owner and publican here on the corner of Lawley Street and Great Brook Street.
