He was the king of the saucy postcard, portraying attractive young women, fat old ladies, drunken middle aged men, honeymoon couples and vicars, in all manner of amusing situations with a lively bit of innuendo to boot.

He was was born in London in 1875, and lost a foot in a school rugby accident. He went to Blackheath Proprietary School, and lived here (a plaque was erected in 1977).

George Orwell wrote an essay on 'The Art of Donald McGill'.
