See TQ2389 : Sign for The (former) Elgin, Bell Lane, NW4 and TQ2389 : Sign for The (former) Elgin, Bell Lane, NW4 (2).

The only other pub that I have come across that has different pictures on the two sides of its sign is TQ2486 : The Tavern, Cricklewood Lane, NW2.

In December 2008, the pub was still TQ2389 : Kerrigan's (photographed by Martin Addison); he says that it was previously called The Bell.

Thomas Bruce, 7th Earl of Elgin and 11th Earl of Kincardine (1766-1841), was a Scottish nobleman and diplomat famous (or infamous) for bribing local Ottoman authorities into permitting the removal of marble sculptures (now known as the Elgin Marbles) from the Parthenon in Athens. He first used them to decorate his mansion in Scotland and later sold them to the British Museum in an attempt to repay his escalating debts. For more info see LinkExternal link.
