Title:Crown and Malt Shovel Public House

Copy of original made by W. B. Shaw. W. B. Shaw was an internationally renowned chemist and lectured at the Walsall Science and Art Institute. Photography was his hobby and he was a member of the Walsall Photographic Society. The majority of Shawrquote s photographs are copies of earlier works. In duplicating these photographs Shaw showed remarkable foresight, since in most cases it is Shawrquote s copies rather than the originals which have survived.
