Another grainy photo and black and white to boot. This time it's myself with a college friend, who came to visit one holiday. On this particular day, we ended up at the Corn Exchange in Bristol. The piece of street furniture that we have appropriated for the photo is a 'nail'. Apparently, merchants used these to hammer out their deals and put down their payments, hence the phrase, 'pay on the nail'.
You heard it here first, folks!
