  • This tavern sign depicting the figure of a bull and a face with a huge grinning mouth previously hung above the Bull and Mouth Inn in Angel Street, Aldersgate. Throughout the 18th and early 19th century, the Bull and Mouth was an important coaching inn, with a yard overlooked by three tiers of galleries. The original building was pulled down in 1830 and rebuilt as the Queen's Hotel. The sign hung over the back entrance to the inn-yard, which, in the second quarter of the 19th century, led to the Great Northern Railway's receiving house. The whole site was demolished in 1887 to make way for new General Post Office Buildings.
