Some history of the Highland Laddie
More information on the Highland Laddie on Lionel Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Highland Laddie 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 Highland Laddie. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"Edwin Hawkesford, landlord of the Highland Laddie beer house, Lionel Street, was summoned for selling drink during prohibited hours.
Mr. Colbeck defended. At half-past eleven on the 30th of last month Inspector Alvey saw a man leave defendant's premises by a back door, with a bottle containing
a gallon of ale. Alvey took him back and met three other men coming from defendant's back door. Defendant was spoken to and asked how he accounted for supplying the
men, and he said that the drink had been paid for before eleven o'clock. There were also a number of men and women in the taproom. The defence was that there had
been a "benefit," and that the beneficiaire, before eleven o'clock, paid for a jar of ale. They intended to take it away and invite the landlord to join them
in drinking it. He agreed, and they waited for him. Getting impatient, they returned and went into the house. Defendant was fined 40s. and costs."
