There was a La Brasseur at 90 Worcester Street, Birmingham. This was still cobbled in the 1950's, but I can't find a photo to compare. I think the shop would have been where Debenhams is now.

Thank you Helen, here's something to help with the relationship between the Sword & Mace and number 112 Little Park Street. Another image from the 1937 directory, how useful of them to list the streets at the end of the road they were recording Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up

112 LPS would be in view here although that gap was there before the war looking at maps?

The end of LPS kinked to the right as you look at Rob's photo, so was invisible from that angle. I'll hunt down the stretch because I'm sure that I've seen it somewhere.... here's one of them. Pretty sure that this is right. Moulding on the building is right, as is the curve of the road. They've taken off the top of the first two shops. Edited by member, 23rd Nov 2020 10:10 pm

Hi Neil, the timbered building threw me before Heathite and Anne pinpointed 112 LPS for the Le Brasseur because I couldn't find anything that matched. It had been demolished before any aerial views captured that area post war. The buildings in the distance were part of the court that had the Sword and Mace (a building I'd love to see) as part of it. I think that the standing buildings were the west side, southern end of it. Edited by member, 24th Nov 2020 5:18 pm

I wasn't aware of The Sword & Mace before Helen but must have been the building here next to the Palace Yard entrance (Fred & Rob's Pages say it closed 1905) -

Not exactly next door because there was a narrow passage/court in between. The Sword and Mace Court was court number 3 on Rob's 1914 traffic map scan. The north wing of the court was the original building which is sadly just a stain on the end wall in the LPS photo.

Fred'n'Rob's Pub section has the address as 43 Earl Street which looking at this map was next door but one, though it’s a post-war one so guessing the numbering may have changed? Edited by member, 25th Nov 2020 3:28 pm

The fire insurance maps are best. Sheet number 11. The Palace Yard was 40. The Herald Newspaper was 41 and then there was a long thin passage/court. Then number 42 and another passageway between that and 43. The passage was the route to the Sword and Mace that was a separate block divided from the front range by a small courtyard. Another passage running through the east side of the pub took you into Court 3 or the Sword and Mace yard. This arrangement dated back to at least 1850. So while the sign for the pub might have been number 43 Earl Street, there's no indication that it was the pub.
