This is a fascinating insight into the evolution of British inn signs, covering over 1,400 inns. It explains the sources from which the inn signs derive and the meaning of such unusual names as the ‘Case is Altered’, ‘The Five Alls’ and the ‘Shoulder of Mutton and Cucumbers’. Few aspects of English life over the centuries go unrepresented in the pictorial pageant of British inn signs, and the most intriguing are to be found here, from reminders of the Roman occupation to signs commemorating kings and queens, national heroes, historic events and even characters in fiction.
