A change of name at the Portman and Pickles
A change of name at the Portman and Pickles
New signs being erected at a pub on Market Street, Halifax. Next to the Victorian Borough Market, this pub was originally called the Wheatsheaf, as indicated by the plaque at second floor level. In the 1970s it was renamed the William Deighton after an exciseman murdered in Halifax in 1769 by the notorious Cragg Vale Coiners. Later the name was changed to the Portman and Pickles, in honour of Halifax-born actors Wilfred Pickles and Eric Portman.

Immediately before this photo was taken the pub had been closed for some time. The name change to 'The Jubilee' was taking place on the Friday prior to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June 2012.
