Containing Multitudes Since 2004
So British... ;)
What a great photo, do you know who the photographer was?
Heh...kind of looks a bit like Lupino Lane.
Keep Calm & Carry On!
Off topic: Thanks for the Blog of the Month nod.
We gotta black up the windows and nail up the doors & keep right on till the end of the war
Why, 'cause Mr. Churchill said?
With most of the able-bodied blokes off to war, rationing in effect, and housewives desperate for--relief--the milkman must have been popular with the birds.
Neither wind nor rain nor snow nor sleet nor dark of night nor buzz bombs nor stukas...So what's my postman's excuse for the crappy mail delivery at my office?
Now I understand how important the milkman must have been during the war time... Not such a bad job after all...
This must be the photo that inspired Billy Bragg's The Milkman of Human Kindness.
'Mr. Churchill Says' is a masterpiece: a dizzying gruel of pride and fear combined with Ray's parody voice and obvious distaste of the "our Empire" and "finest hour" propaganda. It's so much complexity (and dig those modal riffs at the end!).
That is an amazing photo
I feel bad pointing this out but this photo was faked up by the photographer; he got his assistant to dress up as a milkman. So....English
Makes me think of a Robert Capra's famous photograph about the Spanish Civil war. It was said it was a planified...http://www.rjgeib.com/thoughts/heming/espana.jpgWho knows...
