The Penny Black (Pub)

How would you name a pub, if you were the owner? The Penny Black is in Singapore. However, this postcard arrived via Sri Lanka, sent by Ravindra.

I guess there is no need to explain the name, but just in case, from its website:
The name “Penny Black” is derived from the world’s first ever self-adhesive postage stamp which was printed black in colour, sold for one penny, and first issued on the 6th May 1840.

  1. Great name for a pub. It makes me think that there could be a drama/mystery series set here that is mail based :) Are you listening, Netflix?


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
