Bird in Hand, Cook Street

Old Tower Inn Cook St The proverbial saying, "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" is of great antiquity and may have suggested this sign, a popular one since the seventeenth century. Traditionally it was illustrated by a mailed fist on which a falcon was perched. The only known licensee, in 1850/51, was also a silk ribbon weaver.
