Description"This popular sign dates from at least the fourteenth century. Its use appears to be a reflection of its convenience as a visual symbol. By the seventeenth century the phrase had become the nickname of the 7th Dragoon Guards, who rode mainly black horses. The sign was also by this time used by the goldsmiths of Lombard Street, London and is now associated with Lloyds Bank as well as remaining a popular pub sign." Photo by Maigheach-gheal, 2011.
