The Brass Balance in Birkenhead opened in May 2001 and belongs to the nationally-popular Wetherspoons Pub
chain. In the early 19th century the area the building now occupies was empty ground which sat adjacent to St. Paul’s Church and at the rear of the Theatre Royal. By the close of the century the land had been industriously utilised and upon it there then stood several businesses:
No.39 - Eliza Latham, dress maker, worked from here.
No.41 – The Provident Clothing Club, managed by Sam Kershaw.
No.43 – Jason Moore, a cabinet maker.
No.45 – W.B Dobell & Co. Colliery Proprietors.
No.47 – The Birkenhead Club Company Ltd, Secretary Isaac Stubbert
In the early 20th century the firm of W & T Avery, weighing machine manufacturers moved in and occupied numbers 39-41 with one large factory. It is this company from which the present Pub
acquired its name.
