The Hand and Shears



The Hand and Shears

A bar and a place of hanging for prisoners in days of old.

Description: What a history....in times of old prisoners would have their cases heard upstairs and if the judgement went against them, they were allowed a drink at the bar on the way to the gallows....fancy a bloody mary!
