Black Horse, Little Park Street

Little Park St Watercolour H Masters Little Park Street 19th century watercolour by H. Masters. This is a popular sign dating from at least the fourteenth century. Its use appears to be a reflection of its convenience as a visual symbol. By the seventeenth century, the phrase had become the nickname of the 7th Dragoon Guards who had black collars and cuffs on their jackets and rode mainly black horses. The sign was also by this time being used by goldsmiths in Lombard Street, London. The only reference I have to this pub is that two soldiers were billeted here in 1756.
