      Wowza. Thanks, Gary. Although I am not sure I fancy a jar at the Bucket of Blood!

      No doubt Sickert's local when he stayed at the Lizard.

        Blimey, my great-grandfather used to live at Hayle.

          Reposting an image of a pub sign posted on these boards before. The Childe of Hale pub, in Hale, Cheshire, not far from Liverpool. Hale used to be in Lancashire but due to the changing boundaries... The "Childe of Hale," aka John Middleton, was reputed to be nine foot three inches tall, an incredible size when most men were just five foot nuthin (5 foot six inches or so). He wrestled for King James I and an outline of one of those large hands is in Brasenose College, Oxford. He is buried in Hale churchyard and his cottage still stands in the village.

              Ha ha. The sentiment in that pub sign kind of goes along with this.

                Hello all,

                I happen to possess..somewhere... three card collections from the 1970's that have traditional pub signs.
                Never thought about them for years until I saw this thread.

                I think they were done by Whitbread, the beer company.

                If I get a moment I will hunt them down and see if I can show them.
