A new photo of the beautiful city of Canterbury in Kent and surrounding area every day.

I took this picture a while ago but I wanted to find out more about the bull's head before I showed it to you.
Today I went into the shop and asked them if they knew why they had a bull's head above the door. She explained that the shop used to be a butcher's shop.
So now that the mistery has been solved you can see the photo.

Bonjour Rose,
Cool and funny photo :-) It reminds me my childhood! There were similar butcher signs in France located above the entrance.
That's nice they kept it on that building.
Have a great evening

Ooh, I love little facts like that too! Cool picture. But it must be kind of creepy to suddenly see a bull's head staring down at you on the street. =D

I bet children love walking past this building. A most friendly looking bull.
