Sign of the Clarence
The writing on the side wall of the Clarence on Talbot Road is long-standing but the sign is relatively new. It wasn't there in 2010 when the pub was closed and looking for a new landlord. Unlike other pubs in the area it found one and is still open.
I don't know for sure but it seems possible that the Clarence referred to is the Duke who became King William IV after whom the pub across the road is named - see my post of two weeks ago.
See the pub itself on Hyde DP Xtra.
