"sir Thomas Lipton," (U15.188)

Sir Thomas Johnstone Lipton Bt KCVO (1850 - 1931) was born in Scotland of Irish parents. A self-made man and merchant, he created the famous Lipton tea brand.
Sir Thomas Lipton had a passion for yachting, and was the most persistent challenger in the history of the America's Cup. King Edward VII and King George V both shared Lipton's interest in yachting and enjoyed his company. Lipton is seen on this picture (in white pants) aboard the S.S. Erin.
Between 1899 and 1930 Lipton challenged the American holders of the America's Cup through the Royal Ulster Yacht Club five times with his yachts called Shamrock -Shamrock V. His well publicised attempts, which earned him a specially designed cup 'best of all losers' cup, made his tea brand famous in the U.S. This PC, postmarked 1904, shows Shamrock III.

"Lady Godiva," (U12.197)

Lady Godiva or Godgifu (ca 990 - 1067) was an Anglo-Saxon noblewoman and the wife of Leofric (968 - 1057) in Coventry, England. According to legend, the people of Coventry were heavily taxed by Leofric and asked Lady Godiva to intercede in their favor. Lady Godiva repeatedly appealed to her husband in vain. At last, weary of her entreaties, Leofric said he would grant her request if she would ride her horse naked through the streets of the town. Lady Godiva took him at his word, and rode clothed only in her long hair. In respectful gratitude, the townspeople kept within doors and shut their windows (save a tailor, later known as Peeping Tom, who got struck with blindness). Leofric kept his word and abolished the onerous taxes.
