The Queen's Head Inn (2) - signs, Sugarbrook Lane, Stoke Pound
These are very modern signs, and no doubt when the pub was renamed from the Blacksmith's Arms to the Queen's Head, there would have been a sign showing the head of Queen Victoria. During her reign (1837-1901), especially in the earlier part, there would have been many people unable to read and write, so easily recognisable signs were essential for pubs and inns.
