Warm Welcome Mural in Caernarfon, Wales

This mural on a 17th century building is entitled “A Warm Welcome.” It is a historical reference to when Northgate Street was Caernarfon’s red-light district. The 40/60 refers to the cost of a room, a bottle of gin and the company of a woman for the night. The painting also welcomes guests to the Black Boy Inn, a bed and breakfast that includes a pub and restaurant. Although its name may be controversial now, the moniker dates back to when it was established around 1522.
