TCA, if you enter Gem Street into our search engine you will find some references in threads going back to 2011. It May be worth reading these threads.
I didn't find any photo's in the posts but I'll bet Phil has some in his extensive library.

I'll go one better than that, if you go to "All Things Birmingham" I will open a thread on Gem street and upload what few photos I have.

tca A pub with an open fire would be very nice. Where I live (Sheldon) you would be hard pressed to find a pub.
