Five ways to paint a pub sign

Just a quickie tonight: here is a lovely pub sign at a roundabout near the UEA in Norwich.

The five ways most people think of here are, of course, the five roads which meet at the roundabout. But the sign (click on the photo for a larger version) shows five ways of getting around: by boat, plane, train, foot and car.

And I'm pleased to see that the examples of transport are from real life: the plane is Concorde; the train is a streamlined LNER steamer; and the car is a VW Beetle. No doubt the boat is a specific type of dinghy, too.
