Punch Bowl

For today's sign I chose this photo from the city of York, made during our visit last August. The Punch Bowl is a traditional English pub, serving a range of real ales and pub food.

From their site: "Said to be haunted, The Punch Bowl has been a pub for over four centuries. We have a historical connection with the Whig Party from the 17th century. Punch was the preferred drink of the Whigs, whilst the Tories likes their claret. Any pub displaying a punch bowl sign was therefore declaring its political allegiance."

Contributing to signs, signs.
