What's in a Name?

Although it is looking a little the worse for wear this is one of my favourite pub signs in the city. I really like the way the birds wings mirror the flames. The Phoenix, as I am sure you know, is a mythical bird that every 100 years or so sets fire to itself and emerges from the ashes to begin a new life. I can never decide if this picture shows the end of the old Phoenix's life or the emerging of the new. What do you think?


  1. I was thinking he looked a little desperate, which might indicate the end.

    Maybe that is the point to have two equal opinions, and decide over a pint.
