Cornwall’s penny-farthing postal service

More videos

Graham Eccles is an anachronistic entrepreneur, if there is such a thing. A penny farthing may not be much good for long-distance mail delivery but it sure works on a local basis. Drop off a later in the morning and, more likely than not, Graham will have it delivered by the afternoon. Quick! Must be that giant front wheel.

This news report is from 2012. Sadly I believe Graham has retired from the penny farthing mail delivery business and no-one has taken on the saddle.
