Quaint Signs of Olde Inns
G. J. Monson-Fitzjohn (au). This fascinating book is part detective work & part social history. Illustrated with charming line drawings, it traces the lineage of some of the quaint names of old British inns -- from the heraldic, such as the ‘Red Lion’, to the truly puzzling. We uncover the connections of the medieval guilds in ‘The Snob & Ghost’, & the trade links with the city state of Venice in ‘The Sun & 13 Cantons’. We learn, too, that the “Cow & Snuffers’ was the winner of a 1770 competition to find the most incongruous name for an inn. An excellent guide to the living history of Brit. high streets & villages, this book is a compelling read for the tourist, historian & general reader alike. Published in 1926.
