Ship and Shovel

By tony64  
Recovering from the opening night of our exhibition this morning!

Saturday means pub sign Saturday!!!!! And this weeks upload, reminiscent of last weeks Captain Kidd portrait, is the Ship and Shovel.

I'm taking a detour from the Wapping Walk along the Thames North Bank to the center of town and a pub just off Villiers Street and not a stones throw from the Sherlock Holmes pub recently uploaded.

The Ship & Shovel is a notable pub in that it is split on two sides of the path (see V2). Now I don't know of any other pub like this, although I'm sure I will be corrected on this!
It also continues my 'seafaring' theme (just!)

Back to Wapping next week to visit one of Charles Dickens' locals!

Thanks for looking!

Tony

An excellent sign, Tony; did you find the history? it's in wikipaedia. Sir Cloudesley Shovell was a distinguished admiral whose career came to a sticky end when his ship was wrecked in the Scilly Islands in 1707. He is buried in Westminster Abbey.

The sign looks very much like the portrait in the w. article.
