Edwin Francis Reynolds and The Maggies black plaque in Birmingham
Designed by Birmingham born Edwin Francis Reynolds
(b. 1875 - d. 1949) the architects were the Birmingham based Wood & Kendrick.
The Maggies has a sister pub, also in Hall Green called The Baldwin, also designed by E.F. Reynolds.
A profile of the front elevation of the two pubs placed side by side, with The Maggies on the left would reveal another important and prestigious part of history as the design was based on The Queen Mary cruise liner launched by Cunard White Star on September 26th 1934, undertaking her maiden voyage on May 27th 1936.
Fortunately The Maggies and The Baldwin have stood the test of time a little better as The Queen Mary was decommissioned on October 5th 1971.
