The very first pub sign that I photographed was The Royal Oak in Oxford. I took that picture in the approaching twilight of dusk and from too far away. I've never been happy about how it came out.
Returning to Oxford was an opportunity to fix that.
And get a whole bunch more, too.
I'm not sure this really counts as a pub sign, but I like the banana behind it (an advertisement for an insurance agency) so I'm keeping it.
I'm sure this isn't a pub, though it pretty clearly used to be. The penguin can stay anyway.
For the record, I did manage to drink a pint in each of The Wheatsheaf, The Turf Tavern, The Lamb & Flag, and The Royal Oak. (But not all on the same day.) Yum!
