#040 Moby Dick's : 1998 to 2011 (RIP?)
Back in 1998 Moby Dick's was a completely new discovery for me down a side street I'd never been on before.
A typical street corner pub, similar to several others in the area. Needless to say, I never made it back there for a drink.
Onwards to 2011 and it is closed, boarded up and, by all accounts, ready for demolition to make way for the Eastside Locks Development. This is a new concept to me, but looks very good on paper, but whether there will ever be the money to complete the project is doubtful in this economic climate.
Moby Dick's featured, in the distance, in #023 O'Neill's earlier in my blog.
This is the eighteenth in my 'Birmingham Eastside' series.
