The Dog and Pot

"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.
      This is in the pavement with details of the shop.
