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.

A contribution to signs, signs.


  1. It's good to see the pub staying open!

  2. A very striking and easy to read sign.

  3. they have made it look like it has been there forever.
    though I wonder about that period?

  4. Nice signage...and the picture is so cool. Love the perspective. The white against the blue sky is beautiful. I would like to be sitting in a pub right now :-) genie
