Wearing your underwear on the outside… so this is where Superman got his look…

Grasmere is located in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, England. This postcard was mailed from its neighboring village of  Ambleside on August 16, 1906. The Grasmere Sports is one of the most popular traditional events in the Lake District since 18522 and includes Cumberland wrestling.
