RUNNING HORSE - 21 PARAGON STREET - 1851 to 1961
May also have been known as the Jolly Fisherman.

The Running Horse in Paragon Street, seen here on the right of the picture, the swing sign clearly visible.

The emblem above the sign looks very much like that of the Phoenix Brewery.
   

Approximate positioning of Paragon Street and the Running Horse. The street was completely removed and replaced with a bowling alley, shops and a multi-storey car park.
