Pub Picture Puzzles

A quick quiz to see if you can recognise some of these great pub signs from around the town. The 1911 directory listed well over a hundred pubs, taverns, inns and hotels in Whitehaven. Now there are only a couple of dozen and many of the newer ones don't have the traditional signs that used to give a visual guide to those that couldn't read.
