A similar sign is to be found at the other end of the building. A hundred years or so ago, the pub had a sign on a bracket, at the front. This overhung both the pavement and part of the road. It can be seen in a 1903 photograph of this part of the road, in the Francis Frith Collection. There is a story that in the early years of the 20th century, an open top bus was passing under the sign, when it fell killing a passenger.
