#030 Catherine O'Donovan, Highgate : 1998 to 2011
Back in 1998 when I took this photo the pub was called the Pig & Whistle.
It is a pub I'd not been in then...and I still haven't in 2011!
I was somewhat surprised to see that it was still open thirteen years later, seemingly thriving under the new name of the Catherine O'Donovan.
It is quite remarkable that it has changed so little from the outside. I assume that it has been redecorated since 1998, but the owners/tenants have kept to the same colour scheme.
This is the thirteenth in my 'Birmingham Eastside' series.
