Were your ancestors “boozers”? Did they out-stay their welcome in the public houses of Birmingham? You may not want to know, but if you do them visit www.ancestry.co.uk and using the Card Catalogue access the Birmingham Pub Blacklist 1903 – 1906. The good news about this list is that it contains photos of those banned, but then perhaps that’s not good news !!
Each entry includes both a picture (usually with a front and profile view) and a description with such details as:
- Name and alias
- Place of Employment
- Physical description, including hair, eyes, complexion, shape of face, and scars or marks
- Date and nature of conviction and sentence
