This first picture was sent in by ML in 2005. He writes: "This pub, affectionately called The "Bird and Baby," was the favorite watering hole of C. S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the group of friends known as The Inklings. One can well imagine the conversation that passed between Jack and Tollers at this accommodating urinal as they concluded an evening of conversation over a couple of pints."

Jeff sent us this updated image taken in 2012. He notes that "[he doubts] that this porcelain trough is the one [The Inklings] used in the thirties and forties, but it is probably in the same location now as [it was] then."
