Those hanging signs are not just for pubs. The one above is obvious. The one below marks an exhibit on the history of conditions of the working class.
Pubs are not just beer and ale. They are a good spot for a meal. Our fish and chips were prepared in this tiny kitchen at the End of the World. The End of the World got its name because it is at the site of the city gates of the walled city of the 16th century.
Since no one would consider going beyond those gates, it was the end of their world. Brass bricks mark the location in the street outside.
