The Swan Hotel (2) - sign, 21 Acre End Street, Eynsham
In times past when many people couldn't read, inn and pub signs needed to contain a subject that was easy to illustrate and to recognise. The swan or often the white swan became a popular name as a result. It was also associated with innocence and with royalty. The Swan Hotel was originally a coaching inn and goes back to at least 1720.
