Starman commented that the Cycle Gladiator vintage postcard looked like a modern Lady Godiva! Holy good call batman!
Lady Godiva (1040) was that groovy Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who was tired of seeing the people of Coventry suffer under her husband's pesky taxes. He was in turn sick of getting needled by his wife to abolish the tariffs... nag nag nag! He quipped that he would abolish them if she rode naked through town. She did! Wouldn't you?
