THE recent picture in The Crow's All Our Yesterdays shows a man working on the Fox and Hounds pub sign at Barley.

In the late 1950s when I was an apprentice with Jacklin & Hales Builders the sign was taken down and the painted figures were enamelled.

After putting it together in the yard it was re-erected over the road at the pub.

I was up the ladder with a younger lad at the bottom with a red flag to warn the traffic.

The sign used to be further down the High Street until the old Fox and Hounds burned down years earlier.
