No.6 must have been extremely well known in the small community of the Village. Because he never wears his canopied Penny Farthing numbered badge, yet those citizens of the community know exactly who he is - No.6!
Ah, but then in bygone days in a small community such as the Village, everyone used to know who everybody was. I'm not so sure that is true today. I once lived in a small rural Village, where everyone knew everyone else, and everybodies business! But such a thing could never be in the cities where thousands of people live. Unless it is within the small local communities within cities.
Be seeing you.
