Illicit Postcard Sales

OutaSpaceman draws to my attention the story of Harry Bensley. There is much that is delightful in this wikipedia article, but for some reason my favourite bit is when “he was arrested in Bexleyheath, Kent, for selling postcards without a licence”. By the way, in the picture below, he is the one wearing the armorial helmet (with added signage).
