Illustrated with over 100 photographs, this potted history of inn signs from notable historic inns in London offers a fascinating insight into the stories behind the signs. Joan Alcock takes the reader on a tour of inns past and present, discovering the origins of the inn names. The 'pocket book' nature of this book makes it an ideal gift for anyone wanting to follow a historic trail of London's inns, and will especially appeal to local history groups who organise such walks.
Joan Alcock has written numerous books for Tempus and is a knowledgeable historian. She has collected over 1,000 images of inn signs from all over Great Britain. Her next book, Cheshire Inn Signs, is due to be published in July 2007.
