On the subjects of Edgars and Alberts and other things

Come the morning like Topsy it growed and in all directions. John's serious discourse on symbiology and the Trinity and Mary and her blooming limericks. And Hugh as usual is just thoroughly interesting.
So, on the subjects of Edgars, Lions, Alberts and Chequers, below:-
The Edgar Wallace pub just off the Strand in London. I have walked past this many times but don't have my own photograph of it yet. I must therefore acknowledge that the photograph top left is the work of Graham Mason from the Pubs Galore website.
The Red Lion Thetford Norfolk.
The Albert Victoria Street London
The Chequers Billericay. These are my own.
