Crow & Gate Story In 1972, The Government of British Columbia introduced changes to the beverage industry to allow neighbourhood pubs in the Province. Jack Nash, an ex-patriot from Sussex, England, built The Crow & Gate Public House on ten acres of scenic property in Cedar, near Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. In doing so The Crow & Gate Pub became the first neighbourhood pub in British Columbia. Now a well-known landmark and favourite destination for locals and tourists alike. Construction of The Crow & Gate Pub entailed great attention to detail. Pegged beam & plaster, exposed beams, massive stonework open fireplaces, heavy wood trestle tables and, throughout, clad with authentic pub memorabilia from the U.K. all creating an ambiance only otherwise experienced if you take a trip to the South of England. After 15 years, the Olson family took over the stewardship of The Crow & Gate - maintaining, restoring and improving the Pub to its present day splendour. http://www.crowandgate.com/ Some more photos of the Crow and Gate by flickr member yumiang:
Crow lovers are talented, unique and artistic as well. We came across some really beautiful stained glass works with crows. They are shareworthy. The history of stained glass is a complicated and as elusive as the history of the crow. Both have sustained the ravages of time, perservered---thrived. Both are majestic, beautiful lending to a perfect coupling. I would love to have some stained glass windows with crows in them. Here are some of my favorites:

We also found a stained glass project for kids! It is from Aesop's Tale The Pitcher and the Crow. You can get it here.
