Sign Your Number Here Number Six
It is always possible that this man's job, before he came to the Village, was that of a Postman, and so that is his job in the Village. So they allowed him to wear his old peeked cap. Which leaves just one thing - why is he pushing a Penny Farthing about with him on his postal round? I'm quite sure he doesn't ride it. In fact no-one is ever seen to ride a Penny Farthing Bicycle around the Village, they always push it! What's more, that large painted backdrop, of just outside No.6's cottage, in the top picture, isn't fooling anyone! Be seeing you.

Have you ever tried to ride a Penny-Farthing bicycle? I have, it's an acquired skill with a very steep learning curve in which the penalty for error is usually painful, and that's all need be said about it.ReplyDelete
That's a singular cycle you are riding in that picture!
No, fortunately I've never tried riding a Penny Farthing bicycle. However I've seen people who do make it look exceedingly easy!
