To which the answer must unfortunately be 'no'!
The sign was brought down and wrapped in cotton wool awaiting the arrival of the restoration team (alright, perhaps a bit of an exaggeration).
Bit of a disappointment, really, and we were about to assign the "artwork" to the skip when we decided to dismantle the sign, and in so doing uncovered the even older Taylor Walker 'Adam and Eve' sign on the reverse side of the later "effort".
Does anyone remember this sign, or when it might have been displayed outside the Adam and Eve? Does anyone know when it came down to be replaced by the later version (above)? Does anyone know a GOOD artist who might be able to create a new pub sign?
An intriguing email from the son of a former landlord, who now lives in California, suggestes that the sign was handed to a friend of the family when his dad finally handed over the reigns in approx 1987. The search goes on!
