The Sign of the Sun.

The Sign of the Sun.
*******************
A great many residents of Cookham pass this sign every day, and yet, I also wonder how many people have ever noticed it. This sign is embedded in the brickwork of a cottage just below the eave of the roof. Back in the 1800's, it was quite common place to have a sign or symbol like this installed on a building. In this case it was to show that building was insured against fire by the then Sun Insurance of London. Before I posted this blog, I made enquiries that it still existed, and I was informed that it is still in place. It can only be seen by either someone walking or riding a bicycle. So put on your walking shoes and look up.
