Diversifying My Portfolio With Clara and Elspeth


Having derived a deal of satisfaction - although, as yet, not a great deal of revenue - from my recent acquisition of the copyright of Regent Street, I have decided to diversify my portfolio to encompass the trade in human beings. The two ladies pictured above appeared in an old wedding photograph I bought as part of a job-lot of old photographs in an antique market last year. To the best of my knowledge the two ladies - let us call them Clara and Elspeth - are dead and, having purchased this photograph, I would now like to proclaim my worldwide rights to their image.

Having failed to profit from from my earlier acquisition of Regents Street, I have decided to immediately market my latest acquisition with a whole range of products. The range includes a line of T shirts and some environmentally-friendly carrier bags. I am taking orders for any of these products here on News From Nowhere (please enclose cash with your orders).

  1. Ahh Alan- thanks for the laughs this mornning- and good luck with your new venture! (I think Elspeth is a perfectly grand name for the one on the right.)

  3. Oh boy, you are going to be rich. Nice purchase of the two ladies though. They have a good home of someone who appreciates the honest expressions that photos can give. Especially the ones that you own.

  4. Very funny and clever. However did you do it? I want one! (A shopping bag - not an old lady)

  5. Those shopping bags could be a hot item!
    Yesterday I met two of your fellow countrymen a fellow from York and one from Ferry. Ferry sounds like quite the place to visit..I hear it only has two pubs! They have been over here traveling for nine weeks:)

  6. Oh my Elspeth, what an expression she has! At first before I saw they were both ladies, I thought perhaps Elspeth was a man's name. A new name to me, and perhaps she would have lived happier as a Isabella! :)

  8. I want a coffee mug! These ladies were born too soon. They would have been perfect in a television comedy.
