pub signage - a bit of history


In 1393 King Richard III decreed "Whosoever shall brew ale in the town with the intention of selling it must hang a sign otherwise he shall forfeit his ale." And so began the trade of pub signage which has kept me so busy! In the Middle Ages, since most persons were illiterate, pictures rather than words would be used. Images of religious symbols, animals and mythical or important figures were employed, which eventually would lead to many pubs becoming named after their signs. eg. "The Sun Inn" "The George and Dragon" etc.
