London Taverns

Tavern Signs

By British Apollo, 1710

I ’M amused at the signs,

As I pass through the town,

To see the odd mixture,—

A Magpie and Crown,

The Whale and the Crow,

The Razor and Hen,

The Leg and Seven Stars,

The Scissors and Pen,

The Axe and the Bottle,

The Tun and the Lute,

The Eagle and Child,

The Shovel and Boot.
