Wodger, of the "Purple Fawn," and Mr. Jaggers, the cobbler, who also sold old second-hand ordinary bicycles, were stretching a string of union-jacks and royal ensigns (which had originally celebrated the first Victorian Jubilee) across the road.
This sentence is from The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells. In this scene, the village people are preparing for the Whit Monday festival(?). I can tell that Woder and Mr Jaggers are names of people and Mr. Jaggers is a cobbler, but what is Wodger’s ‘purple fawn’?
Would I be right to understand it as the name of a shop, with Wodger being thus the shopkeeper? As far as I know, a fawn is some kind of a deer, right? Is it clear to a native speaker what The Purple Fawn refers to?
