Do you know where "The George and Dragon" derives from? Probably. How about "The Gloucester Flying Machine?" Probably not. Some pub names pop up time and again, others have a unique story to tell. This book untangles the meanings behind Britain's extraordinary variety of often strange pub names and signs. Providing enlightenment for the local historian and pub enthusiast, Discovering Pub Names and Signs explores a unique aspect of a classic British pastime and all its quirks.
