"My usual way home was over Blackfriars' Bridge, and down
that turning in the Blackfriars Road which has Rowlands Hill's
Chapel on one side, and the likeness of a golden dog licking
a golden pot over a shop door on the other."
Charles Dickens 1812 - 1870
What Dickens saw on his way home as a child was the sign on an ironmongers shop
It is now commemorated by a new "Dog and Pot!" at a spot in Union Street at it's
junction with Blackfriars Bridge Road, Southwalk.
