GUEST,keberoxu Folklore: Odd pub names (412* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 03 Jul 20


Martha Grimes, when she started writing and publishing
her series of police-detective murder mysteries featuring
the character of Richard Jury,
always named each mystery after a pub or club of some kind.
Several pubs named in this thread
have become titles of Richard Jury mystery books,
such as The LaMorna Wink.

A more recent installment, however, is titled
'The Knowledge' and it refers to the arcane mysteries
known to taxicab drivers in Greater London --
but I really don't know that there actually exists
a pub called 'The Knowledge.'
